Item description for Men of Character: Elijah: Remaining Steadfast Through Uncertainty (Men Of Character) by Gene A. Getz & M.D. Paul Meier...
Overview Modern idols come in many forms: money, power, position, prestige. The story of Elijah is a vivid illustration that idolatry leads inevitably to divine judgment, and that as Christian men, we must take a strong stand against this world's system. The MEN OF CHARACTER series highlights the lives of men in the Bible and demonstrates that we can still learn from their relationship-both with God and man. Each of these Bible characters faced trials, frustration and failure, yet they were inspired by God to achieve great goals. In a world where Christian role models seem increasingly rare, this series reminds us that some of the most worthy examples of godly characters are still the biblical figures who brought power, wisdom and inspiration to God's people throughout the ages. Principles flow from their lives that will guide us through the maze of challenges we face in today's world and can help us to emerge victoriously.
One in a series of twelve books by Gene Getz examining role models of the Old and New Testaments in situations relevant to modern times.

Practical lessons from ancient prophets Jun 6, 2000
"Elijah" is a decently written book that covers the life of Elijah. The main purpose of the book seems to be bringing present life-lessons from the prophe's life. This book is not a history book, instead it reviews what Elijah experienced, considers how he responded to those experiences, and then relates these responses to present struggles that the modern reader might have. The book is good for what it is meant to be.
