//Book Review// 40 Days of Decrease

 I'll start off by saying right away that this book wasn't what I expected at first. I imagined that it would be a good discussion on fasting and different ways to fast and how that plays out in our lives. 
 What I found it to be is a 40 day devotional with a fast for each day. For each devotion excerpt, there is a scripture reference and a place to journal or jot down notes. There are also sections at the end of each chapter for reflection and also the history behind lent. Reading the history and theories of lent was less interesting for me than reading about different practical ways to fast.
 With this book, I would have preferred a discussion on fasting with practical applications for carrying it out in our everyday lives. The devotional style of it did become a bit more intriguing close to the end and I decided it would be interesting to read it as such and follow along with each of the daily fasts.
 This would be an excellent book to read in preparation for Easter.
