Elijah & Elisha: The Malmesbury Abbey Summer Series

30 June 2011 No Comment

This summer, from the Old Testament books of Kings, comes the dazzling and shocking ministries of the 9th Century BC prophets Elijah and Elisha. In an ancient world where king, queen and prophets worshipped the local Canaanite deity Baal-malqart, two voices are raised to challenge the laziness of idolatry and compromise. Their words can be white hot with rebuke or self-doubting; their actions can be shaped by determined faith or debilitating depression. And they come asking a three thousand year old question—do you want to be relevant to society, or do you want to be relevant to God? Do you belong to the world, or does your world belong to God? Connect with these two Old Testament giants each Sunday or on the podcast.
