Welcome to Fire On Your Head, the podcast designed to "kick you out of the upper room". We're a discussion and interview-styled show hosted by me, Steve Bremner, a blogger, author, and missionary to Peru. Join me as I interview authors and other interesting people, and sometimes post shows just by myself getting something out of my system. Sometimes I'm funny, sometimes serious, but hopefully you'll find it always worthwhile.

Since many people make New Year’s resolutions that involve weight loss or spiritual disciplines to fast more, we thought we’d tackle the subject of fasting. Join us this week as David Edwards and Steve Bremner continue their series on unpopular subjects in the body of Christ.

Is it really beneficial or even necessary for the believer in the New Covenant? What is true fasting? Do we have any commands in the New Testament that we’re to fast, or was that part of Jewish culture? Is it about abstaining from only food, or other things? In what situation did Jesus say “this kind only goes out by prayer and fasting?” You may be surprised, so join us in what is going to be the first in at least two parts on the subject. 

Visit here for David’s article on The Hidden Manna mentioned during the discussion.

Check out a great Bible teaching series by Dave Roberson, called The Basics of Fasting.
