The Prophet of Carmel

The Life and Mission of Elias the Prophet

by Rev. Charles B. Garside, MA
218 pp. sewn softcover

We are very pleased to have this book in print again, a favorite of our Carmel. It is the story of the man whose name is practically synonymous with the word “prophet”.  Garnering his material from the last two of the four Books of Kings, Father Garside paints a portrait of a thundering visionary, an illuminating light of truth and a tender-hearted radiance who lights up the Old Testament perhaps more brilliantly than any other Biblical figure. A man of prayer and solitude, celibate and chaste, he moved courageously with every heavenly summons, never failing, never daunted. So much a contemplative and a teacher of eternal truth that, even though his initial mark on history falls in the Old Dispensation, he is nevertheless justly claimed as the “founder” of the Carmelite Order. One cannot help but note the similarity of Elias (whose name means “strong God”) with St. John the Baptist, the greatest of all the prophets. The Savior Himself refers to His precursor as another Elias.

  1. Best book written on the prophet Elias

    Posted by Sheila Skelton on 17th Jan 2019

    I had wondered for a long time on what happened to Elias when he went up in the chariot of fire. I was led to this book by Fr. Wolf, FSSP who was not sure it was still in print. Well here it is - as softcover reprint with contents exactly like Fr. Wolf's book copywritten in 1924. It will answer all your questions about Elias and will give you a deep insight into the meaning of Elias's life.
