Publisher's Summary

When the kingship and the priesthood become corrupt, God often raises a great prophet to counter them. Ahab reigns over the northern kingdom of Israel (870-853 B.C.) and Asa over the southern kingdom of Judah (910-869 B.C.). Ahab “did more evil in the eyes of the Lord than any of those before him. He not only considered it trivial to commit the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat (worship of the golden calves at Dan and Bethel), but he also married [that vile, loathsome and despicable woman] Jezebel daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians, and began to serve Baal and worship him” (2 Kings 16: 30-31). To counter such massive corruption and idolatry, God raises one of his greatest prophets, Elijah. His story begins here.
