A Man of Heroism and Humility.
Exploring the depths of Elijah's fascinating life as a prophet of God in 'Great Lives: Elijah', Charles Swindoll does not gloss over his human weaknesses; rather, he presents an honest picture of this ordinary man whom God transformed into His personal spokesman to confront idolatry and evil in the ancient world.
Alone, Elijah faced off with over four hundred prophets of the false god Baal; and won. Yet, on another occasion, he became so terrified of a woman that he ran for his life. He was Elijah - the man in a whirlwind, the humble hero.
In a world that has lost its way, due in part to the lack of balanced, godly leadership, we are more than ever in need of a few Elijah-like men and women who are not afraid to live courageously among their peers as they walk humbly with God.
