Meeting Elijah: True tales of Eliyahu Hanavi
The stories in this volume are all about real-life encounters with Elijah the Prophet. In a moment of need, a stranger appears, offers help, and then disappears—sometimes as if by magic. The stories are all true, heard directly from the people involved or from a close friend or relative. They point to the presence of Elijah among us, or to a "spark" of Elijah that moves in and through people, leading them to do remarkable things. In all cases, they reveal the remarkable level of hashgachah pratis—Divine providence—that we can experience in our lives.
The stories are surprising, inexplicable and inspiring. They remind us that the world is a mysterious place, and that G-d's deliverance can occur in the blink of an eye.
A lyrical, beautifully written and uplifting book that is a delight to read. The stories--some of them jaw-dropping, others more subtle--serve as portals to the mysteries of life, and are vivid testimonials to the presence of holy shluchim sent to us by the Holy One.
