Fasting as we wait for Christ


A Hunger for God: Desiring God Through Fasting and Prayer
by John Piper

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As usual, Piper closely analyzes biblical teaching and draws on wisdom from other writers, especially in the English-speaking Reformed tradition. He takes Matthew 9:14-17 — where Jesus says that His disciples will not fast while the Bridegroom is with them, but they will when He is gone — as the key to a distinctively Christian view of fasting.
