Item Description...
Raymond Dillard's multi-faceted work on Elijah and Elisha draws out the essentially Christ-centered messages contained in these stories. He intends to nourish reader's faith and encourage worship and his book can be used in personal devotions, as a small-group study text, or as help for sermon preparation. Faith in the Face of Apostasy will help readers understand the stories in 1 and 2 Kings as part of the over-arching story of God that culminates in the life of Jesus. Raymond B. Dillard (M.Div., Westminster Theological Seminary; Ph.D., Dropsie University) was Professor of Old Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary until his death in 1993

Publishers Description
Written for laypeople, study groups, and pastors, this study of the lives of Elijah and Elisha shows how the Old Testament accounts direct us to faith in Christ today.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A passionate book that has a lot to offer  Jun 5, 2006
This book has a lot in common with the other book I recently reviewed, Hope in the Midst of a Hostile World by Professor Schwab. Just like Professor Schwab's book, the book is an excellent examination of how the Old Testament can reach out and teach those of us living in the world of the New Testament, as we wait eagerly for the Day of the LORD. The book involves an examination as to the importance of Elijah and Elisha, how these Prophets of the LORD spoke to those who would be reading Kings and Chronicles (that is, the exiles in Babylon), and what they mean in how these two point toward John the Baptist (Elijah) and Jesus Christ (Elisha). Like a lot of people, before I started my seminary studies, I really had a hard time exploring the Old Testament. The Old Testament was a vast land of symbols, characters, and history, a lot of which almost seems burdensome in comparison to, say, reading the Gospels and Hebrews. I am happy to say I was wrong, the OT is vital for our studies of understanding God's history in terms of our history. Professor Dillard's book talks about how we as Christians must face apostasy. Today this apostasy can be seen in materialism and liberalism--from the love of money to the love of simplified religion (I point toward Marcus Borg and ex-Bishop Spong, two men whom are doing their best to destroy God's eternal truth, though, like Ahab and the Baal priests, they wont destroy God's truth). Now I will admit that the book is not an all encompassing book that explores having an Elijah and Elisha attitude toward apostasy (such as, say, how would we Christians meet the apostasy of Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code), but then again (besides the fact that Dan Brown's book was written after the authors untimely death) the best defense is a good offense--instead of reading paragraph by paragraph from people like Dan Brown and arguing from their p.o.v, turn around and read the Bible and see how God Himself answers those who fling apostasy around. If you want the truth, read the truth in the Bible and study hard God's amazing rulership and God's reaction toward evils. I think that you the reader, the Bible student, will have a lot gained from understanding Professor's Dillard's message in this book.
Brilliant  Aug 11, 2005
The late Dr. Dillard was professor of Old Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary. This is concise, sharp exegesis of these narratives from I and II Kings. Don't expect exhaustive verse-by-verse technical commentary. Dillard is interested in grasping the big message of each text, interpreting it theologically, relating it to Christ and applying it practically. His applications are often biting, striking for the heart.

Along with Dale Ralph Davis, this was the most helpful I found in my studies of Elijah and Elisha.
A reliable and very readable study . . .  Oct 8, 1999
Raymond Dillard has written an outstanding study of the Elijah and Elisha narratives. It is to the point and well prepared. A great study for teachers, students, pastors or anyone wanting to connect Old Testament writings with today's world.
