Publisher's Summary

There is nothing more powerful than fasting. Though it lasts for a short season, it brings long-term effects and blessings. This book is focused on the power of fasting to help you regain your edge when the circumstances of life deplete your spiritual energy and dull your spiritual sharpness. Best-selling author Jentezen Franklin sets the focus for the book by using the story of the student prophet in 2 Kings 6 who lost his ax head while working. The ax head flew off the ax and landed in a dirty, murky pond and sank to the bottom. Through this biblical example, Franklin will give us the steps to regaining our edge, which include:

1. Make up your mind to admit it is lost. 2. Confess that you have lost it. 3. Confide your loss to someone in a spiritual position to help. 4. Go the river (point of losing it). 5. Watch the power of God make your lost edge swim to the top of the murky river. 6. Pick up the ax and put it back on the ax pole (our part in regaining our edge; God will not do it all).

TEENAGER Baptized

Tried it, it worked. Powerfully. Hard headed teen was baptized in 6 days amongst other blessings. still trying to coax my hair out of that blown back shape.

Excellent and inspiring

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book as it is inspiring for Christians to fast and pray.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fasting Edge?

I was amazed to hear that fasting can include eating fruit and vegetables and not just drinking water.

What does Kirby Heyborne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

the book is read and to me, it sounds just like Jenzen Franklin and I can picture him reading the book to me with honesty and from the heart.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The miracles that occured because of the fasting

Any additional comments?

The Fasting Edge

Very encouraging book and I would recommend for every church leader. God is raising a remnant of men and women who are wanting to keep the passion for Christ burning. Thank you Pastor Franklin I'm inspired! Keep writing.

Great

The content is great. The author's voice would be much better rather than a narrator.

In deep water yourself, This book is for you .

Been praying, in frustration, I demanded of The Holy Spirit to answer my question. The answer, "ADD FASTING TO YOUR PRAYING. "

Great book!!! Putting on repeat

I loved his first book so much. Thought this would be redundant. It wasn't. Very good content. Wish he was the narrator though.

Encouraging and gets to the heart of the matter.

This is what I needed and was searching for. Filed with truth, encouraging and brought me back to the heart of why I'm fasting, need to and why. Thank you LORD for blessing me through this.
