Have you ever tried the spiritual discipline of fasting? It's quite misunderstood in today's church environment, and possibly for that reason alone, is not practiced too often. The historicity of fasting in the Old Testament is amazing and certainly speaks to Yahweh's desire of self-abasement when seeking God's counsel.
With that in mind, if you're looking for information about fasting. I would look in places other than Stovall Weems' Awakening. My review is enclosed below.
