Signs and Wonders in an Ancient Land!

(Audio excerpts below)

Being a prophet during the reign of Queen Jezebel is a dangerous calling. After all, she has put most of them to death! But Elijah has a mighty angel on his side, as well as a sisterhood of shapeshifting goddesses.

This majestic and imaginative retelling of the great Old-Testament prophet’s ministry and miracles will take you on a transcendental journey through time and space and otherworldly encounter!

Join Elijah as he takes on the false prophets of Baal, take cover in the enchanted moonlit woods of Cherith Brook, and ascend from the banks of the Jordan to choirs of angels!

At times raunchy, yet always reverent, this beautifully choreographed 12-book epic poem unfolds a timeless story of love and danger, wonder and prophecy!

“An epic tale, Biblically based, but with considerable writer’s freedom that makes the book wholly entertaining… Read one of Abdiel LeRoy’s books and more than likely you’ll reach for the others!”
San Francisco Review of Books


“A new realm of reading… LeRoy has a grand and unique perspective, and has accomplished a great task of writing an epic poem, which is no small feat… Just wonderfully written and put together.”
