I’ve gotten quite the back-up of books this last month! I’ve been very lucky in a purchase, an unexpected free book and my usual books from the publishers. So, I’ve got to get some reading done! The book I’m reviewing today is one I’ve taken my time reading. I’ve read it slow for several reason. One, I’ve been really busy with family things and two, it’s so very full of wisdom.
These are the Days of Elijah by R.T. Kendall
Have you ever sat down with someone older and full of wisdom? Do you have the Pastor who can make a sermon or lesson flow like a conversation over an afternoon coffee? That is how this book is written. The book walks you through the life of Elijah integrating life’s experiences with Biblical knowledge. Prior to reading this book, I was not as familiar with Elijah’s story. There were many details I either didn’t remember or didn’t connect to Elijah himself. My overall knowledge of Elijah grew tremendously while reading this book. The book also provides a better understanding of God. Elijah’s life demonstrates God’s character. The book provides insight into God’s time and how he prepares us to do great things. It reinforces the need for preparation and explains how God prepares us.
I recommend this book to anyone desiring to get to know God better. Whether you’re a new Christian or have been one for a long time, this book will provide insight to Elijah and (more importantly) God. This book would also be good for someone who is interested in Christianity but 100% certain.
I give this book a 5 out of 5 book ends.
I received this book for free from Chosen Books for review. I was not required to give a positive review.
