From the Back Cover
God used Elijah to accomplish great things--and He can use you, too.
Elijah is marked as one of the greatest prophets of the Bible. More than a gifted seer, he spoke directly for God, and with His authority. Elijah is the only prophet to have called down fire from heaven, and one of only two individuals in Scripture taken to heaven before tasting death. Yet this remarkable agent of the Lord was also very human, afflicted with the very same failings and fears you have.
With keen insight and practical application, beloved theologian and teacher R. T. Kendall explores the triumphs and contradictions of this powerful man of God. You will love seeing how Elijah was like you--righteous but proud, strong but cowardly, blessed but tested by trial and doubt.
And you will take joy in realizing how God will use you, as He did Elijah, for His perfect glory.
"Very well written. Kendall examines the various episodes of Elijah's life in the Scriptures and draws out of them deeper truths that we can use today. He serves up to his reader skillful insights, practical applications of truth, helpful anecdotes, and wisdom from the Scriptures. People will understand God, Elijah, and themselves more fully. Recommend this book to everyone." --David Mundt, CBA Retailers + Resources
"Kendall masterfully gives a 'double portion' of wisdom and insight into the powerful impact and great victories an ordinary person can achieve for God's kingdom if he will simply follow and obey him." --Worship Leader

The warnings for us is to know the Lord your God. Elijah warning to King Ahab and to the people of Israel was complete and left no question that it was from God. Know that the Lord is holy, humble yourself and see your pride for what it really is.
The encouragement comes in the form that Elijah was often misunderstood and at many times in his minstry felt alone, that he was the only one. There is much insight in this study that I really appreciate and if you are one that likes the study of Old Testament prophets, you too, will appreciate how God walked with Elijah during this time of depression. Elijah's zeal for the Lord and the complancey of God's people was a great tension for Elijah and caused him some despair in spite of all that God did which I think is true for us today. Resting in who He is, is so needed for our souls
The book was written so well I had a hard time putting it down. I was captivated by it!
