Publisher's Summary

Elijah bemoans that he is alone in proclaiming God’s warning to an evil people, yet never ceases to plead with his kinsfolk to turn back to God. Facing an evil king and queen, while suffering famine and ridicule, this great prophet of God stays faithful to his cause. Yet, what will be the fate of those who scheme against Elijah, and others who walk carefully along God’s holy path?

This delightful retelling of the classic bible tale is told in the spirit of the countless storytellers who have enthralled audiences young and old throughout the centuries.

This tale is one of the series, "Bible Stories Shorts", and is also available with the collected other stories as part of "ales of Old, Stories from The Old Testament".

Critic Reviews

"The tales from the Old Testament are as familiar and comfortable as pot roast for Sunday dinner, yet these are new and fresh in lively retellings by Clive Johnson. Using great storytelling techniques and modern language, Johnson makes these tales nearly dance off the pages." (San Francisco Book Review)

"...Accessible, enlightening pieces that lend to read-aloud drama, bringing to life not just the tales but their underlying lessons. These stories don't just lend to read-aloud, but beg to be performed." (Midwest Book Review)


"A read-aloud compilation for children and adults...encouraging a revival of the oral tradition of storytelling." (BlueInk Review)
