This volume covers the early ministry of Elisha as recorded in chapters 2 to 5 of 2 Kings. Drawn from sermons preached to his congregation, this work follows that of Elijah the Tishbite where the call of Elisha is covered. Viewing Elisha’s ministry as essentially evangelical and gracious in its nature, Krummacher draws lessons in his own inimitable style. His descriptions of each scene draw the reader in bringing every event to life. Devotional reading from a master of the art! Friedrich Wilhelm Krummacher (1796-1868) was a German pastor and writer. His work The Suffering Saviour together with various biblical character studies continue to be widely read and respected. This edition is based on a translation from 1838 and has been completely re-typeset.
