"You are invited to join an expedition led by an experienced guide. It's an expedition into a scorching, dusty desert wilderness, where an ancient kingdom lies in ruins. A man is alive in those ruins. He is willing to speak to those who make the journey into his world.
The kingdom in desolation is ancient Samaria during the dynasty of Omri and Ahab. But it could be America in the '80's. The expedition leader is the best-selling author, lecturer, and naturalist W. Phillip Keller. And the compelling figure whom you will meet on his own territory is none other than the ancient, "troubler of Israel," Elijah: Prophet of Power.
Come stand beside the flaming prophet in his hour of unforgettable triumph, when he dared to confront the priests of Baal, the fertility god, challenging at its very core the brutal, depraved, and lawless religion of his times.
Come, too, and live beside the prophet in his period of preparation for the challenge. Your shelter is a shaded ledge in the fiery heat of a rugged desert canyon. Your food is the carrion dropped to you by scavenging birds. You drink from a pool of stagnant, murky water left by the last, long-departed rain.
Come reflect upon the important lessons to be learned for our society and our day from Elijah's life. Is this what it's like to be a spokesman for God? Is the preparation by suffering and humiliation really necessary? Is this what it will take before the 20th century believers can regain the courage to confront the evils of our time?
Life-changing secrets are waiting to be revealed to you during the time you spend in the presence of ELIJAH, PROPHET OF POWER."
