The call and the preparation of the Lords Prophet
5 stars By Brad Taylor, Nov 29 2009
The Elijah Task is perhaps the most instructive and illuminating text on the role and preparation of the Prophet currently in print. It ought to be considered essential reading for any who find themselves called to (or already in) prophetic ministry, as well as for those called alongside such individuals.

Thoroughly scriptural throughout, the Sandfords have an authentic and humble approach to their subject; the book is replete with real-life illustrations and examples, and it seems as many of these are of the lessons learned from their own mistakes as they are of spectacular success or stunning revelation.  The theme throughout is concerning the breaking and shaping of the Prophets character into utter dependence upon the Lord and the realisation that he never attains any state of righteousness or effectiveness in the gifting apart from that dependence.

The Elijah Task is a most practical work that will not only assist the budding Prophet in understanding and stepping into their call, but will also unambiguously dissuade them from any notion that the road ahead will be quick, easy or glorious.  The Sandfords convincingly demonstrate what it means for the Prophet to be next to last in the ecclesiastical order; that the call to high office in the Church is never a elevation to honour, but rather an invitation to humiliation.  Their frank and honest discussion of their own sins and failings is the greatest encouragement to those who would follow on that narrow path.
