The Chariot of Israel: Exploits of the Prophet Elijah
by Will Varner
Friends of Israel Ministries
The prophet Elijah is one of the most outstanding personalities in history. He was an unusual combination of frailty and faith. When he was caught up to heaven, his disciple Elisha cried out, “the chariot of Israel and its horseman!” Elijah was referring not to the chariot, but to the prophet! It was Elijah’s intimate relationship with God that gave the prophet his title.
His amazing confrontation with the prophets of Baal endures as one of Scripture’s most vivid accounts of how God demonstrated His awesome power before unbelieving men.
This study of Elijah’s life will captivate you as it walks you through a pivotal period in Israel’s history. The illustrative maps contained in this book will give you a better picture of the physical geography of this ancient land.
