Book Review for Fasting by Scot McKnight

I found the book Fasting by Scot McKnight to be boring and repetitive.  I thought that the author just kept repeating his ideas about fasting over and over but in different ways.  I really wanted to like this book, but I couldn’t.  I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone.  Or for that matter, the other books in the Early Practice Series.

I also thought that the way that the author wrote about this serious issue was almost in a non-serious way.  I didn’t glean any helpful information from this book.  

The author kept using different of samples of fasting and I didn’t understand his language of fasting as body talk, body grief, body hope and the other weird ways that he put it.  I thought his way of explaining the whole subject was very confusing.  I had such high hopes for this book and it was just not up to my standards.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
