Review:These Are The Days of Elijah by:R.T. Kendall

About the Book:
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.

My Review:
 This book is an excellent resource on the prophet Elijah. Elijah was much like you and me but yet was set apart for many great and wonderful things done solely to glorify God. I see alot of similarities in some of the things Elijah done and the things that Jesus accomplished. Don't know if there is a connection there it was just something I noticed. Elijah was a very notable character in the Old Testament.

 He was one of the two human beings that was taken to Heaven before he had a chance to actually die. He killed 850 false prophets only to be afraid of the one and only Jezebel. Those two facts alone; about him, interest me probably more than any other prophet in the Bible. The author has taken what we learned from Elijah and all he proclaimed in his day and applied it to today and what we should consider and look for in the days leading up to Christ's return.

 The author has also mentions Elisha which came after Elijah to finish the work that Elijah started. But he is described as being even more powerful than the former prophet. If you are interested in learning more about this book you can do so here.
