There is a marked resemblance between our time and that of Elijah and Elisha. Chariots of Prophetic Fire shows how many of today’s Christians are again guilty of Baal worship, loose morals due to inflation-fed prosperity, and syncretism. Once again, as in the days of Elijah and Elisha, it is considered virtuous to tolerate evil and condemn those who do not.
In Chariots of Prophetic Fire, Rousas John Rushdoony challenges today’s church to resist compromise in the face of expediency and to realize that power does not lie in politics or governments but in God’s men of faith. Rushdoony encourages readers to take a stand of faith for God’s truth in a culture of falsehoods.

About Rousas John Rushdoony
Rousas John Rushdoony (1916–2001) was a well-known American scholar, the author of more than 30 books. He held BA and MA degrees from the University of California and received his theological training at the Pacific School of Religion. An ordained minister, he worked as a missionary among Paiute and Shoshone Indians and as a pastor to two California churches. He founded the Chalcedon Foundation, an educational organization devoted to research, publishing, and cogent communication of a distinctively Christian scholarship to the world at large. His writing in the Chalcedon Report and his numerous books inspired a generation of believers to be active in reconstructing the world to the glory of Jesus Christ. Until his death, he resided in Vallecito, California, where he engaged in research, lecturing, and assisting others in developing programs to put faith into action.
