Peter Du Moulin (1601-1684), was a Reformed French Calvinist, and Henry Wilkinson (1566-1647), was a Reformed preacher and scholar and member of the Westminster Assembly.
In the first treatise Du Moulin explains three important parts to prepare for true fasting taken from Gen. 18:20, “Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous…" He covers how God behaves himself towards his enemies, and how gentle and mild God is towards them that fear him, caring for them.
In the second treatise, Wilkinson describes the physical fast using Joel 2:12-13, “Turn you unto me… with fasting and with weeping and with mourning…” He demonstrates that fasting is a physical exercise for a holy purpose, to enact true repentance in us and spiritually elevate our heart and mind to stand in the grace of God for the glory of Christ.
