These online Bible study notes or guides are free for you to use for small groups, for individual Bible studies, or as Bible commentaries.

About fifty 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.

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 here, and Elijah is among them (Still with some ‘old’ phrases)!
