Overview


The book, cc. 60,000 words, contains 18 chapters of narrative with an additional 15 pages of supporting detailed notes and references for the critical scholar. Following the narrative is an explanatory Epilogue which brings this tale of the Old Testament into the full light of the Modern Day.
It is a riveting tale of cruelty, arrogance and voluptuous passion seeking to annihilate goodness and simple courage and faith in the two opposing characters of the Queen and the prophet. As an exciting drama of war and peace, at all levels, it becomes a book that, once started, is hard to put down. It is also the story of the man Elijah, a living and breathing person, growing marvellously in human and spiritual stature as the great drama develops. The action opens with Elijah challenging the whole Court of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel. His subsequent flight, his victory on Mount Carmel, his flight again - this time to Sinai and the Still, Small Voice - are followed by the savage battles fought between Israel and Syria.
It is an immortal tale. King Ahab passed into the annals of the historians. Queen Jezebel into the chronicles of the damned. But Elijah passed into the hearts of Israel. He lives there still, the greatest prophet of them all.
Ahab and Elijah come again into personal conflict when the King and Jezebel accomplish their disastrous murder of Naboth, for his vineyard, and Ahab meets his inevitable, violent death in battle.
Elijah remains, becoming the shepherd of his flock, the people of Israel and, after a further triumphant encounter with Ahab's successor, he is finally translated in a cloud of glory, leaving Ahab's House, including Queen Jezebel,to come to a horrifyingly bloody end at the hands of Elisha and Jehu.
The whole book is a completely new approach to the well-loved story and to its hero, Elijah. It is history brought to life and written in a style befitting the challenge of the original.
