Elijah: A Man Who Stood with God

( 10 )

Overview

Where are great leaders like Elijah today? Uncompromisingly strong, yet self-controlled. Disciplined, yet forgiving. Audaciously courageous, yet kind. Heroic in the heat of battle, yet humble in the aftermath.

We see a few such men and women, but the list is tragically short. Rarely does someone model these invaluable traits more obviously than God's mighty prophet Elijah, whose calling was anything but calm and free from conflict. Nevertheless, as you are about to discover in ...

Overview

Where are great leaders like Elijah today? Uncompromisingly strong, yet self-controlled. Disciplined, yet forgiving. Audaciously courageous, yet kind. Heroic in the heat of battle, yet humble in the aftermath.

We see a few such men and women, but the list is tragically short. Rarely does someone model these invaluable traits more obviously than God's mighty prophet Elijah, whose calling was anything but calm and free from conflict. Nevertheless, as you are about to discover in this book. Elijah exemplified true heroism and genuine humility amid the relentless pressure of battle.

Elijah: A Man of Heroism and Humility is the fifth volume in the best-selling Great Lives from God's Word series by Charles Swindoll. The series also includes such powerful biographies as Joseph, David, Esther, and Moses.

Exploring the depths of Elijah's fascinating life as a prophet of God, Swindoll does not gloss over his human weaknesses; rather, he presents an honest picture of this ordinary man who God transformed into His personal spokesman to confront idolatry and evil in the ancient world. You will find that it's a life worth emulating.

In a world that has lost its way, due in part to the lack of balanced, godly leadership, we are more than ever in need of a few Elijah-like men and women who are not afraid to live courageously among their peers as they walk humbly with their God.

"May this book establish deep within you a desire to stand strong for what is right as you bow low before Him who is worthy of your trust and obedience."-Charles Swindoll

    A Prophetic and Timely Book

    I personally love this book. So much that I need to buy a second one. I have moved and have misplaced it. I found the book to be a prophetic word to my life as I am called to the prophetic office. I found the different stages of Elijah's life to especially minister to me. As I read each chapter, I found the Lord ministering to me in regards to my specific time in ministry and life. I am so anxious to read the 'rest of the story' to learn what I can from a man who passed through the tests and trials of a prophetic person, and how the Lord brought Him through it all. Thank you, I look forward to purchasing another book and finishing it!

    EXCELLENT

    I found the book to be a wonderfully simplistic look at Elijah, the profit. It was an excellent description of what we know of Elijah, his life, and how it relates back to our own lives, even today. Swindoll was trying to break the scripture down to layman terms so that we could understand how a man came to be the profit of God.

    Not That Great

    I don't know what I expected picking up the book, but I certainly didn't get it. It seemed to me that Dr. Swindoll was talking down to me throughout the book. He was repetitive, and, well, boring. Normally, I try to finish a chapter before I put a book down, but I was putting this one down in the middle of a chapter because I would get frustrated with it. I haven't read any of the other 'Great Lives from G-d's Word' series and I probably won't now. Perhaps I was looking for a more lofty discussion of Elijah and the events surrounding him (I would have at least expected a word about Malachi 3:5, but it wasn't there), and instead got a low level discussion. I would say I felt like I was being preached at, but that wouldn't give a good enough description. OK, so maybe I am being a bit harsh. Let me just put it like this: if you're looking for an exposition of a Bible character who often isn't given enough press, read the book, you'll like it. However, if you want a more in depth study of the person, his life events and such, don't bother.
