In Elijah, Hamilton Smith traces the major events of the life of Elijah, the Prophet of God, with all the highs and lows in his work as a prophet. Elijah knew only too well the inadequacies of his own humanity - he was a man who was "subject to like passions as we are". But Elijah knew the living God, was conscious of His presence, and was aware that prayer brought him into contact with the greatest power in the universe.
We need every scripture for conviction, correction, and instruction; but the scriptures that present "the things concerning himself" must have a special charm for the Christian. It is this that makes Psalm 16 so attractive, for it sets forth the moral perfections of Christ, the perfect man, as he trod the path of life through this world of sin and death.
