This was a very readable book, the only criticism being that it is a fairly thin book and I zoomed through it in a couple of days. Surprise surprise I am now behind again with recording my book reviews.
The main theme of the book was comparing the times of Elijah 900BC with those of Britain today. Sadly there is quite a close comparison, and shows the state of our broken society.
Elijah was a great example and inspiration, of his time and also for ours. He stood up to the King (Ahab) and the false religious establishment at the time proclaiming the truth, and challenging their false claims.
The great thing about Elijah was that though he was such a great man of God, it is also possible to identify with him, especially as he goes through the whole gambit of human emotions during the several years of his life that we read about in the Bible.
John is able to take these and make them relevant to us today. This is a book to recommend. This is book 45 – week 35 – fiction 40 (10 on audio) non fiction 5
