This book was provided for review by Tyndale and this review expresses my honest opinion.
I have had this book for a while (too long really). I'm more of a fan of the fiction novels than I am of informational books. That's probably why it took every fiber in my body to read this book and complete it. I must say that it is eye opening!
The author, Susan Gregory, wrote The Daniel Fast based on scripture that is found in Daniel 1 and 10. The Daniel Fast is what I would call a "partial fast". It focuses on eating only pulse foods and vegetables and fruits that come from seeds (reference Daniel 1:12) and staying away from meat, sweets (oh no!!) and wine (reference Daniel 10:3). In the scriptures you will find that it is for 21 days, and the book gives a plan for 21 days also, but obviously you can do this for as long as you feel like.
She teaches you how to fast in a healthy way, follow a 21 day plan (or longer), create healthy meals, participate in a group and learn how to listen to God. There are hows and whys listed all through the book with great scripture references and she also shares menu plans with a ton of recipes to help you along with this fast.
