Nehemiah 9:1-3 –As a sign of repentance the people of Jerusalem undertook a fast. The Word of God had been preached and they began to recognise and acknowledge their sin. Their example opens up the whole question of fasting and what the Bible says about it. Is it something Christians are commanded to practice? What is its purpose? How should it be practiced? These are the questions Pastor Brendan explores in this very helpful study.
