Elijah : And the Secret of his Power
by F B Meyer


About thirty years ago an old book grabbed my attention. According to the flyleaf it had been given to someone in 1888. It was ‘Elijah : And the Secret of his Power’ by F B Meyer.


It was an amazing book, but the style of writing was archaic and hard to understand, so I set about re-writing it in modern English.


I failed, many years later I had got to the end, but I had lapsed into the thought patterns of the author, and it was far from modern.


Having retired, my wife and I moved to Devon and joined a Baptist Church. I was asked to lead a small Bible Study group and I found a new purpose in doing something with ‘Elijah’.


Over the years we have covered many books of the Bible and I have gradually adopted a style for my notes. It is these that are offered on this website, and Elijah is among them (Still with some ‘old’ phrases)!
