``ELIJAH AND THE SECRET OF HIS POWER F.B.Meyer

Young, beautiful, and evilly ambitious, Jezebel sought to destroy all Jehovah worship in Israel. In its place, she would promote the worship of Baal, the fertility god, who demanded sacrifice -- even infant sacrifice.

Jezebel and her husband, the weak King Ahab, thought it would be easy to eliminate the
worship of Jehovah. The kingdom was split in two, and already many worshiped idols. The royal
pair had priests and prophets of Jehovah hunted down and murdered.

But in their calculations, they did not consider Jehovah Himself, or His servant, Elijah the
Tishbite.
Against probably death, Elijah, by Jehovah's power, confronted Jezebel, Ahab, and 450 Baal
priests. F.B.Meyer brings this exciting event to life for modern readers.

F. B. Meyer was born into a Christian home in London, on April 8, 1847. He was ordained into
the Baptist ministry, and he was the man who introduced his friend, D. L. Moody, to Great
Britain. Other Moody Press books by F.B.Meyer are The Christ Life for Your Life, Five Musts of
the Christian Life, The Secret of Guidance, and The Shepherd Psalm.
