John Wesley on Fasting

From Wesley's sermon # 27 Upon Our Lord's Sermon on the Mount:

In order to set this in the clearest light, I shall endeavour to show, First, what is the nature of fasting, and what the several sorts and degrees thereof: Secondly, what are the reasons, grounds, and ends of it: Thirdly, how we may answer the most plausible objections against it: And Fourthly, in what manner it should be performed.

For more of Wesley's wisdom on this subject the entire sermon can be read online here.
