Overview

As she has done with other books of Scripture, the mystic von Speyr here provides incisive, profound and original verse by verse commentary on the Elijah cycle, reflecting on both the action and events of the narrative as well as on the meaning of each verse. Both the content and the style are stimulus to prayerful reflection and a help to meditation. Von Speyr focuses on the importance of understanding Elijah as a prototype of Christ and a key to the New Testament message.

Some of the chapters included here are "The Drought is Announced", "Elijah and Ahab", "The Sacrifice of Mt. Carmel", "The Encounter With God", "The Call of Elisha", "Ahaziah and Elijah", and "Elijah is Caught Up to Heaven".
