I don't read Biblical fiction very often as I am usually disappointed by the writers unsanctified imagination... and there are a lot of books like that out there.
Cliff Keller has written a book of a different style by carefully studying the stories of the Bible and then weaving together a stroy that may or may not have happened, but which brings the life and times of Elijah alive, with the tension, the life, the spirituality, and even the humor, of every day people who thought they were living through every day events and didn't know that the history they lived would be recorded for our generation.
I really enjoyed this book, and it made me go back to my Bible and reread the events played out in his book with new eyes.
Cliff Keller's book, "The Ivory House-The days of Elijah" (I can't make italics here) gives us a look at the prophet Elijah and he is a bit different, indeed. The description of Elijah and the the events that makes up the story are told by young Yashar (and his God-driven dog Juttah). We are told they are fictional but they are totally believable and likable. In fact, that is what I found myself doing-believing everything I was reading was exactly how it happened. Silly me.
But that's what good historical fiction supported with excellent research can do. It takes us to that time and place and we believe that is way it actually happened. Plus, "The Ivory House" is a good read and fun. I enjoyed it and am looking forward to Book 3.
Anyway, thank you Mr. Keller for another enjoyable book.
The northern kingdom of Israel under the reign of King Ahab comes alive through the experiences of Yashar and Juttah, his fierce and valiant dog. Yashar is befriended by Naboth, whose vineyard King Ahab coveted, and becomes one of the family. His life is entwined with theirs as he learns the craft of wine-making, marries and has children.
I caught a glimpse of what it may have been like to live in these days. The author’s chilling rendition of Queen Jezebel, his descriptions of the priests of Baal and characters such as Bidkar, the army captain who turns from Baal worship to serve the true God enriched my understanding of the biblical accounts. I found the author’s narrative to be very accurate when compared with the events of Scripture. I’ve read the book twice and would definitely recommend it.
