I was thrilled when I was able to get my hands on a copy of Volume 5 which was hard to track down; thanks to a local used bookstore I snagged one! I highly recommend this book and series! Other characters featured in the series are David, Moses, Paul, Job, and the greatest life of all: Jesus Jan 20, Ian added it.
A solid study of Elijah's life, if a bit presumptuous in some places. There is plenty of insight and some useful historical insight as well. Jul 16, Brian Taylor rated it liked it. Elijah: A Man of Heroism and Humility takes a look at the life of Elijah in a way that is unlike any other book that I've encountered before. Charles Swindoll paints a picturesque image of him as someone akin to this nation's Robert E.
Having faced a crucible that was very warlike in nature, Elijah had to show great humility and heroism throughout his life, whether it was in service to God as he faced those who wanted him dead or whether it was in the presence of a grieving woman who si Elijah: A Man of Heroism and Humility takes a look at the life of Elijah in a way that is unlike any other book that I've encountered before. Having faced a crucible that was very warlike in nature, Elijah had to show great humility and heroism throughout his life, whether it was in service to God as he faced those who wanted him dead or whether it was in the presence of a grieving woman who simply wanted her son.
I'd say this book is for anyone who truly wants a greater look into the life of this prophet and really has not grasped the heart of this man in relation to how he might be just like us. While at times I felt that this book was disjointed, I found that there was a method to the direction the author took to tell the story as I progressed.
This is one that is most likely one that will stretch your understanding and provide you, your bible study, book club the material for greater dialog about faith, character,and life. When Elijah is taken up in a whirlwind and Elisha cries, "My Father! My Father! The chariots and horsemen of Israel.
Swindoll speaks of Elijah's despondancy, his discouagement, and his depression. Elijah lived in an evil and perverse world but most of the time he was a man of faith that commanded rather than spoke. Swindoll rminds us that there is an end to God's patience and that God keeps His word.

But, at the same time he is discouraging: would I be unhesitant in following the Lord's seemingly nonsensical commands like Elijah was? Would I be brave when squaring off with the wicked king of Israel, challenging his idols, dualing spiritually with his 'god' and slaying that god's priests?

I only gave this book a 3 star rating because it seemed predictable in its principles and applications. For me, though perhaps not for you, it was flat. That said, I still loved Elijah and Swindoll presented him fairly and accurately. Jun 29, Dan Curnutt rated it it was amazing. I really enjoyed reading this. Chuck does a great job in capturing not just the life of Elijah but then helping the reader me put into practical terms how I should apply the lessons Elijah learned to my own life. I was particularly moved by the thought about how Elijah could get the best of prophets of Baal, succeed in his contest with them, be at the top of his game emotionally and spiritually but then plunge into the depths of depression.
It gave me much to think about. It is a quick read I really enjoyed reading this.

Nov 19, Ireine Roosdy rated it it was amazing. After I read this book I was ascertained to name my baby boy Elijah. I prayed he would take the full humanity of Prophet Elijah's service, be of full bravery in faith, yet humble enough to admit insecurity only to God in person.

Exploring the depths of Elijah's fascinating life as a prophet of God, Swindoll does not gloss over his human weaknesses; rather, he presents an honest picture of this ordinary man who God transformed into His personal spokesman to confront idolatry and evil in the ancient world. You will find that it's a life worth emulating.
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 their God. Charles R. Swindoll has devoted his life to the clear, practical teaching and application of God's Word. His renowned Insight for Living radio program airs around the world.
