We are poised at a key moment in history. Amidst pain and chaos, we can turn the tide of evil in our lands.

Here he equips you with the dynamic, practical tools you need to answer the call of countercultural consecration. Using Jesus as the role model, he reveals that 40 days of prayer and fasting always precede breakthrough, revelations of God's glory, breakage of demonic hindrances, and more. As we join together in fasting and intercession, we'll see victory in the critical issues of our day--and we'll awaken the nations for Christ. Global revival and transformation is imminent. Will you answer the call?

Back cover copy

Before there was ever a Jesus movement, there was a Jesus Fast. Both a war manual and global summons to revival, The Jesus Fast is your guide to the most explosive weapon in the Christian arsenal: humility, expressed in fasting, combined with prayer. Using Jesus as the role model, Lou Engle and Dean Briggs reveal how extended fasting and the 40-day fast precede breakthrough and a true outpouring of the Spirit. It's time for the next Jesus movement.

We stand at the brink of massive spiritual upheaval. Will God's people merely endure history, or shape it? As we seek His face together, the Church can significantly realign earth with heaven. We can turn the tide of evil in our lands, awaken the nations to the glory of Christ and forge hope out of despair. This is the call. How will you answer?
