Fasting For Financial Breakthrough | Book Review

Fasting For Financial Breakthrough by Elmer TownsFasting For Financial Breakthrough by Dr. Elmer Towns is an excellent teaching on Biblical fasting, rooted in theology not prosperity. This is not a “get-rich” teaching and instead focuses on partnering with God to manage your finances. Upon completing the book I felt a renewed and refreshed attitude towards money. I was so impressed with this teaching that I felt called to lead 500+ women through a 40 Days Financial Fast. After reading this book I learned to:

  1. Fast and pray according to God’s will
  2. Fast and pray according to Biblical principles
  3. Fast and pray in faith believing
  4. Fast and pray in fellowship
  5. Fast and pray continuously
  6. Fast and pray to be cleansed of sin barriers
  7. Fast and pray with a great number of people

I learned truths about money, financial obligations, self-control and my relationship with God. While I’m a graduate of the Financial Peace University from Dave Ramsey, there are many theological concepts presented by Dr. Towns that are not included in FPU study. Both teachings are worthy of your time and investment!

My first exposure to Dr. Elmer Towns was a class on The Gospel of John at Liberty University. There I learned he is co-founder of the University, Dean of the School of Religion and a translator for the New King James Bible. After watching numerous teaching videos and reading his book on the Gospel of John, I was so impressed with his work that I started looking for more books by this Bible scholar.
