Elijah (1 Kings 19:1-14)Peter den Haan3rd December 201715,629 Kb
Description
The series of biblical characters who faced life after failure continues with Elijah, who lost all confidence in the face of Jezebel’s threats, fled, and fell into deep — even suicidal — depression until he met God on Mount Horeb. We explore God's gentleness with the broken prophet before him, and his fury with injustice.

The liberating God (Exodus 12)Peter den Haan15th October 201714,996 Kb
