When I first saw the title of this book, I immediately began humming the tune to the song by that name, one I first heard as a teenager attending “Chrysalis.” With that happy memory as a starting point, I read and enjoyed These are the Days Of Elijah: How God Uses Ordinary People to Do Extraordinary Things by R.T. Kendall. Despite the short chapters, this book took me longer to read than most others I’ve read this year. However, I didn’t mind reading it like a devotional. There was plenty to digest in each chapter. It was my first time studying the life of Elijah in depth, and I really enjoyed the insights Kendall offered. What I loved about the story of Elijah was summed up perfectly by John Paul Jackson in the book’s Foreward: “The oft-overlooked crux of Elijah’s ministry is that he was a human being who dared to believe God could use him.” Kendall describes Elijah as one would describe an old and dear friend. His knowledge and life experiences are rich and enlightening.
