The Last Faithful Man by Joel Simon


The Last Faithful Man by Joel Simon

This is the story of the ancient Israelite prophet Elijah, and his conflict with Jezebel and the cults of Baal and Ashtarte. The political struggle between the national kings and the traditional religious forces are the subtext of this story from the Biblical Book of Kings. In the original narrative, Jezebel is protrayed as entirely evil and Elijah entirely good. But time has a way of reducing real people to one-dimensional caricatures, when the realities are much more complex. The conflict takes place over several generations, and eventually determines the future of the nation.
