Publisher's Summary

The life of Elijah has gripped the thought and imagination of preachers and writers in all ages. His sudden appearance out of complete obscurity, his dramatic interventions in the national history of Israel, his miracles, his departure from the earth in a chariot of fire all serve to that end. He comes in like a tempest, who went out like a whirlwind, says Bishop Hall; the first we hear from him is an oath and a threat. Judgement and mercy were mingled throughout Elijah's astonishing career.

It is fitting that the lessons which may be drawn from Elijah's ministry should be presented afresh to our generation. History repeats itself. The wickedness and idolatry rampant in Ahab's reign live in our gross 21st century's profanities and corruptions. False prophets occupy large spheres of influence and truths dear to our evangelical forefathers have been downtrodden as the mire in the streets. A.W. Pink clearly felt called to the task of smiting the ungodliness of the age with the rod of God's anger while at the same time encouraging the faithful remnant. With these objects he undertakes the exposition of Elijah's ministry and applies it to the contemporary situation.

Excellent

This is the first book that I have listened to/read by AW Pink. This was clearly a very deeply studied subject and such great insights were lifted from this rendition.

Requires more patience than I have.

The reading was great. I found myself struggling with the breakdown of every verse word by word. The author gives commentary on every word in the verse repeating the same verse over and over for each word that he breaks down. I just found it hard to get through a story I really wanted to hear. I am not saying it was the author the problem probably lies with me. I just couldn't see the forest for the trees, as every tree was emphasized i. front of me.

Solid study of the life and times od Elijah

Excellent verse by verse study of Elijah. Each verse is commented on and put in perspective with New And Old testament confirmation verses. You have to have the right heart to listen to this. If you go into this thinking “I already know this story”. You will loose out on a blessing. I say this from my own experience or i guess you could call it pride. I learned a lot, i repeated several times. I reflected about my walk, you should to.
