Elijah's Boy

By R. K. Livingston


It wasn't easy for orphans living in the Samaria of King Ahab and Jezebel, his Queen. For the boy, Nathaniel, survival was what mattered most...until he became the servant of Elijah, the mysterious prophet of Yahweh. It was a dangerous time for anyone who still served the ancient God of the Israelites, particularly when serving Yahweh meant defying the King. Was Elijah's God worth dying for? Nathaniel wasn't sure. This is the story of a young boy's journey to faith at a time in history when taking a stand for God could cost him his life.

Book Takeaway:

Elijah's God is a God worthy of our trust. Each one of us must choose just as all Israel had to choose whom they would serve.

Why the author wrote this book:

I decided to write this book when the 10 year old children in my Sunday School class admitted that they found a lot of the old Bible stories boring. They'd heard them all before. I wanted to help them experience Biblical events through the eyes of a character they would be able to relate to. In 1 Kings 18:43 it tells us that Elijah sent his servant seven times to look towards the sea for any signs of rain. We know nothing about that servant but what if that servant was a boy, an orphan who knew nothing about Yahweh before meeting the prophet? How could that boy's journey to a faith of his own inspire my Sunday School class to make that decision for themselves?


"Excellent story for boys sorting out who to follow. Historical Setting is very well done and the action will keep children turning the page. A two day read of escape for me."
