Publisher's Summary

Elijah’s friends are dead, and without a miracle, he’s next.

Elijah is a young prophet studying the Torah, when the soldiers of Queen Jezebel burn his school and massacre his teachers. He escapes, barely, but finds himself on the run and hunted as Queen Jezebel attempts to stamp out the worship of the Hebrew God in Israel and replace it with the worship of Ba’al.

As the queen’s soldiers close in on him, Elijah discovers a little known promise in the Scroll of Deuteronomy and prays for something impossible - that God would turn the skies to bronze and stop the rain on the kingdom that has abandoned him.

And God says yes.

As drought and famine grip the cloudless land of Israel, God tells Elijah to hide and sends him to the land of Tyre, to a widow and her son who are on the edge of starvation. In Tyre Elijah finds a darkness at the heart of the city, a darkness that threatens to consume Israel next. But even if he survives, will Israel listen to his warning?

This is a re-imagining of the story of Elijah from the Bible.

Great book

This was recommended by a friend. I'm glad I listened to her and got the book. This is a great addition to the original story. It adds personality and depth to that story. At times I found it hard to stop listening knowing I had things to attend to. This is one of the best I've listened to this year.

John Noble was able to bring Elijah to life!

John Noble was able to bring Elijah to life and help make readers relate to him in a way I haven’t seen before. Very well done! I’ll be watching for his work in the future.

Excellent Biblical Fiction

The story of Elijah/Elisha has always been one of my favorites. I was very pleased, entertained, and even inspired by this book. It’s biblical accuracy was astounding and the author’s creative expression blended very well with the biblical facts and cultural aspects of the story.
It isn’t very often that I find a Christian book truly inspiring, at least in terms of fictional works, but this one was exceptional. I even opened my Bible a few times while listening to this audiobook, just so I could find the specific verses that were mentioned. It has inspired me to read my Bible more and truly see the people of the Bible as heroes as much as real people who faced trials and triumphs just as we do everyday.
Very uplifting, invoking, and entertaining. 100% recommend this to Christian readers of all ages everywhere.
Oh! And the narrator did a wonderful job too!

Beautifully Crafted

The book was beautifully crafted my only suggestion would be as the book progressed it began to lack details and the richness that the author brought to the first half. Even so, I truly enjoyed
