Russ Masterson had read and heard about purpose, but didn’t have a clue what his own purpose was to be. And there was emptiness where there should have been value. “I had a college degree, and soon a seminary degree to accompany it, yet I didn’t know where to go or what to do.” As he puts it, “I kept hoping a step would arrive when it was time to lift my foot.”
Disillusioned with his life, as well as with God, he heard this advice: fast from food for 40 days. Faithless and frazzled, Russ accepted the challenge, hoping for direction, reflecting on the past, and wrestling with issues like purpose, faith, and love.
In this book, readers will find a fresh literary voice—an insightful thinker who meets people in their humanity while helping them to see they can be rescued from it. The journey of these forty days without food will help you explore what really matters in life.
