The life of Elijah was unique and Holy Spirit-filled. F.B. Meyer turns his pen toward this fascinating life story in Elijah and the Secret of his Power, revealing how "the life of this mighty man was produced through the indwelling of that Holy Spirit who is equally within reach of those who will believe and obey." Meyer does not make Elijah's life a dusty story of a bygone time; rather, he carefully weaves applications to our Christian walk found in Elijah's life into a compelling description of Elijah. Elijah's biography is a riveting narrative of this "wild, untutored child of the desert," who was given by God a high work and calling beset with great difficulties.
One of the greatly loved preachers of his day, Frederick Brotherton Meyer was a pastor, author, Bible teacher and evangelist. He was born in London in 1847 and grew up in a Christian home. In 1895 he went to Christ Church in London, with only 100 attending. Within two years he was preaching regularly to over 2,000. He remained there for fifteen years and then began a ministry of conference preaching and evangelism, traveling to South Africa and the Far East on mission endeavors. He returned to England to pastor for several years before he died in 1929.
