Item Description...
Overview
Elijah the Tishbite. He stepped out of nowhere to become a significant prophet of God. The rugged, gaunt prophet from the obscure town of Tishbeh became God's powerful instrument of confrontation.Alone, Elijah faced off with over four hundred prophets of the false god Baal¿and won. Yet, on another occasion, he became so terrified of a woman that he ran for his life. He was a man who God sent His ravens to fee. A man who God loved so much that He prepared a special chariot and horses of fire to transport him from earth to heaven. He was Elijah-the man in a whirlwind, the humble hero."Like a meteor, he flashed across the inky blackness of Israel's spiritual night."-J. Oswald SandersLike Elijah, we're all subject to times of bravery and times of fear. One day we're able to face life with a smile; the next, we feel crushed by its oppressive weight. We vacillate from courageous to cowardly, from hopeful to hopeless. Like Elijah, we are ordinary people with seemingly overwhelming problems. And the answer is in God alone as the name "Elijah" indicates: It means, "The Lord is my God."He lived courageously with his peers and walked humbly with his God.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

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Is Tom Landry Really Like Elijah?  Mar 26, 2007
I liked this book; although I would not compare the boring ex-football coach Tom Landry to Elijah the Prophet. What is more like Elijah is when you send a fan letter to a female newscaster at a local TV station, get threatened by their corporate lawyer for it and God replies by sending an angel and causing a small earthquake in their studio during the 6pm news that very day! Some people know about God and some people actually know God! But another odd experience was listening to Radio Athens on shortwave to a seductive sounding woman announcer, have a mental vision of a metal band wrapping itself around some dark haired woman's throat and then the announcer starts choking uncotrollably over the air over 3000 miles away! This was in the early 90's!
But I did like the part that prophets like Elijah and Moses go through a time of testing with God. And in the case of Elijah, God sends ravens with pieces of food in their mouths to feed Elihah when he was on the run from the king. And I have seen God provide for my needs in ways I would not expect at times!
 
Elijah Great Lives  Feb 22, 2007
This book is a wonderful walk through the life and times of Elijah. Chales Swindoll has many insightful thoughts that stimulate deep discussion. If your looking for light reading then this is not it, but if it is spiritual challange and insight your looking for then your in for a good time.
 
All right  Jul 10, 2006
I received the book in good condition and in a fairly timely manner, but the book didn't come with the cover sleeve. I have the whole series, but this one is now the oddball without that cover. I don't know what happened there.
 
Misrepresented  Mar 11, 2006
When I ordered this book, I assumed it would have been written by a Jewish author and Published by a Jewish company. I am sadly mistaken. It comes from a Christian publishing company and the author is Christian. I havn't read the book yet and will be leary of details.
I would like to see better representation of books about Biblical characters.
 
Pass the Bread, Raven  Jan 11, 2004
I went into this read with little or no expectations. After all what else can be said about Elijah that hasn't been said already?? Well let me tell you that Swindoll found a way to breathe life into an old story. It was more than a book, more than a read. It was more like a sneaky way of writting a devotional that challenges your soul at the end of every chapter. I hated picking up the book for 2 reasons: It stirred areas in my soul that I had forgotten to take care off. And that with the reading of a new chapter I was getting closer to the end. I will be reading the book again but at a snail's pace so as not to miss a drop from this refreshing book.
