-- The Complete Idiot's Guide "RM" to Fasting fits in well with the strong line of spirituality and new age titles.
-- No books on fasting currently on the market are complete -- it's either fasting for health, or fasting for its nutritional value, or fasting as a spiritual exercise, or fasting as part of one's religion.
-- Although fasting had been abandoned by most Protestants in the past, in the late 1990s there has been renewed interest in fasting and prayer as a means of spiritual revival among evangelical Christians in the United States.
The Complete Idiot's Guide "RM" to Fasting covers: fasting around the world -- religious, cultural, and historical traditions and their relationships to modern health, nutrition, and spirituality; the differences between types of fast, from the one-day weekly juice fast to the yearly five-day fast and more; the physical, psychological, and spiritual challenges of fasting -- particularly fasting as a catalyst for spiritual growth; fasting and health, and the mind-body connection; fasting and meditation, including fasting retreats; six types and fasts, as well as variations; and your fasting toolkit, with information for preparation for fasts of any length.
