Elijah is one of the most compelling personalities of all human history. His life combined frailty and faith in unusual measure. When Elijah was caught up to Heaven, his disciple Elisha cried out, "the chariot of Israel, and its horsemen" (2 Ki. 2:12). It was not, as some suppose, that Elijah was caught up in a chariot. Rather, it was his intimate relationship with God which gave the prophet his title. Author Will Varner will help you understand Elijah's unique life and ministry with his clear insights and the aid of maps illustrating the physical geography of Israel. The Chariot of Israel is truly a significant book for an age in history when mankind so desperately needs an example of a man of God.
