This work is fiction, best described as a historical novel. Our novel covers the era of the great prophets of the bible, Elijah, the Tishbite, and Elisha, son of Shabat. The work begins at the end of the life of Israel’s great king, Solomon. Then, we follow the break up of Israel into northern and southern kingdoms and meet the kings of Judah and of Israel, both good and bad. This manuscript follows scripture as handed down through the King James Version (KJV) of the Holy Bible. However, the author attempts to translate the Early Modern English of the Elizabethan period into a form more easily understandable to the reader, filling in blank spots in the narrative by offering the reader plausible explanations regarding; the great persecution of Ahab and Jezebel against the people of GOD; and the life of Elijah, Israel’s greatest prophet.
