ELIJAH, whom Roger Ellsworth calls ‘the man without a resume’, appears and disappears in dramatic fashion on the stage of human history. Called to serve God in an age of widespread moral and spiritual deterioration and confusion, he reached great heights of boldness and faith, but also sounded the depths of discouragement and depression. The life of Elijah is a call to find our strength in the God who takes the weak things of this world to confound the things that are mighty.
Roger Ellsworth’s exposition of the life and work of Elijah carries a message of great relevance for all who are seriously concerned about the contemporary world scene.
