Product Description

This book is intended to nourish faith and provoke worship. It really has three audiences in mind - the individual, the Bible study leader or adult Sunday school teacher, and the pastor. It is divided into eleven chapters, after an introductory chapter, each one contains tow or three sections, each section devoted to an event in the life of Elijah or Elisha. The book can be used in the following ways

1. As a guide to devotional reading. Each chapter is kept fairly short, so that i can be read alongside the passages as part of personal worship.

2. As a text for a small-group Bible study. Each chapter ends with a few questions to prompt further reflection and discussion.

3. As a help toward the preparation of sermons. The Old Testament is unbelievably rich and exciting - shouldn't we hear more than this three-fourths of the Scriptures during the worship of the church? Trajectories for applications to our current day are interspersed throughout each section.

Endorsements 

"At last a series on the Old Testament designed to provide reliable exposition, biblical theology, and a focus on Christ. These books should be like manna in the desert to pastors, preachers, teachers, and many individual Christians who struggle to come to terms with how to read the Old Testament." - Sinclair B. Ferguson

"Christian readers will be delighted to find in this book just the help they need. Few writers combine scholarly expertise and theological good judgement as the late Ray Dillard did...highly recommended for anyone who wishes to understand Old Testament narrative." - Moises Sillva
