Elijah - Bible Study Book: Faith and Fire

Old Testament heroes are best known for their most celebrated moments: Moses dividing the Red Sea; David slaying Goliath; Gideon routing an insurmountable army; Joshua marching around the defiant walls of Jericho.

And Elijah-calling down fire on Mount Carmel.

Blinded by the remarkable narratives of our biblical heroes, we can forget they each had a backstory-months and years of development, even difficulty, which fortified their spiritual muscle and prepared them for the tasks that made their lives unforgettable.

Every serious believer longs to summon up the kind of boldness and faith that can stand firm on Mount Carmel and pray down heaven into impossible situations. Yet few are willing to go through the process required to get them there. Strength of faith, character, and boldness can only be shaped in the hidden fires of silence, sameness, solitude, and adversity. Those who patiently wait on God in the darkness emerge with their holy loyalty cemented, their courage emblazoned, and their confident belief in Him set afire.

Join Priscilla Shirer on this 7-session journey through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to discover how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine. And how the emboldened, fiery faith you desire is being fashioned by God in your life right now.

I am so blown away with this study of Elijah. I have learnt so much in depth with the alliance of Elijah. His commitment, his boldness and his fearlessness to deliver God’s word in 1Kings 18. Priscilla Shirer has written this so beautifully, clear snd precise. I am so glad that I bought the book along with the videos. Thank you, Priscilla Shirer.

I ordered this book in February, excited to join the Bible study group at my church. However, I have gone through the book only to realize that chapter 6 is repeated twice and a significant number of pages are missing from each copy of chapter 6 of the book. There should be a study for days 1-5. I have a Day 1 and then a Day 5 then it repeats the entire chapter again with a Day 1 and a Day 5. Unfortunately, by now I am outside of the return window! So, I am stuck with an incomplete book!

I haven't finished it yet but had to come on to start my review and will update when I have finished. This book is very relevant to what is happening today. It makes me excited to do the daily studies. If you can get the Audio bundle that accompanies it. Very powerful! FIRE!!!

If you are living by a dried up brook, this is the book for you! God shows Elijah how to totally trust in Him when there is nothing but Him. Priscilla Shire knows how to deliver the Scriptures just like her Dad Tony Evans! She is a gifted speaker. Author and Bible study leader.

This is yet another excellent study by Priscilla! She writes as if she is sitting across the table looking at you and listening to you. Elijah is an Old Testament hero that actually has a lot for us to learn from. Especially how to pray and how to move more deeply into our relationship with God. Her writing is practical and the study asks very good questions that invites you into deeper Scripture study AND asks you questions that allow you to look closely at yourself. She moves toward helping you recognize God moving in your life—because He is!!! We need her help to “clean our glasses” to see Him at work. And she does a very fine job in this study. I find her studies are good for individuals to study privately as well as for group study. There are videos soon available, or you can open your Bible and use this study guide without the video. I believe the videos will be icing on the cake to these studies!
