Raymond Dillard’s multi-faceted work on Elijah and Elisha draws out the essentially Christ-centered messages contained in these stories. He intends to nourish reader’s faith and encourage worship and his book can be used in personal devotions, as a small-group study text, or as help for sermon preparation. Faith in the Face of Apostasy will help readers understand the stories in 1 and 2 Kings as part of the over-arching story of God that culminates in the life of Jesus.
Raymond B. Dillard (M.Div., Westminster Theological Seminary; Ph.D., Dropsie University) was Professor of Old Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary until his death in 1993.
