A Hunger for God by Piper

This book, A Hunger for God by John Piper, greatly impacted my walk with my True Love, Jesus Christ.

This book takes you on a journey of fasting and praying. It discusses what the Bible says about fasting, as well as fasting over the course of history.

In chapter six, Piper says: “Woe to the fasting that leaves sin in our lives untouched. The only authentic fasting is fasting that includes a spiritual attack against our own sin. Is our fasting really a hunger for God?”
