In this brutal, yet magnificent, story—set in the stark landscape of ancient Israel—William Stephens vividly portrays the heroic adventures of Elijah. All alone this rough-hewn prophet confronts Queen Jezebel in her malicious scheme to supplant the worship of Jehovah with the sensuous fertility cult of Baal. All alone God’s servant, Elijah, turns the tide of Jewish history.
Elijah . . . Jezebel . . . Ahab—names charged with electric emotion! Here the electric charge is transformed into throbbing, explosive reality—names become flesh and blood people—as the reader lives with them in the terrible presence of frenzied, demonic priests and enslaved masochistic devotees of Baal.
This book has been published also under the titles Elijah and Prophet of Fire.
