After reading this book, I can only give it 3 stars because I had a hard time finishing it. The book is not very long, but the author went in to varied detail about the life of Elijah. I’m not a person who enjoys every minute detail so I think that’s where this book lost it for me. The book describes the life of Elijah in chronological order based on all of the passages in the Bible pertaining to Elijah’s life. It seemed that the author did immense research concerning the culture of that time period and was well versed in Biblical knowledge. If you’re a Elijah fan, as my husband is, this is the book for you. I enjoyed the book overall, but the overwhelming details made it hard to get through to the end.
