Twenty-five years after the release of his ground-breaking book The Elijah Task, co-authored with his wife, Paula, a sequel comes from the powerful pen of John Sandford. In Elijah Among Us, he outlines a biblically rooted discussion of prophetic history and functioning, both how to instruct prophets and commission their office and how to inform the church about prophetic ministry. Sandford wrote this follow-up book because he sees a strong and even dangerous overemphasis in the church on the "giving of personal words," which is only one role of the prophetic office.
The first section of this book develops a history of the prophetic office, how the office metamorphosed from one of warning into proclaiming God's gentle and merciful side, and becoming burden-bearers. Second, Sandford sets forth the working functions of prophets, explaining how they serve in twelve major roles, including bringing blessings, healing, warning of impending judgment, giving protection from tragedies, and offering direction, guidance, or confirmation.
Readers will gain crucial knowledge of a widely misunderstood topic, helping them be discerning in these strategic end times. Authoritative and compelling, Elijah Among Us is a timely and vital work for the Body of Christ.

From the Back Cover:

A job description for prophets-then and now.

Is the prophetic gifting for today? If so, whom does it involve and how does it work? In this sequel to John and Paula Sandford's classic The Elijah Task, John teaches about the history of prophecy and its biblical application for today. He shows those who have this extraordinary gift how to discharge the office properly, and he gives the Church a vision for God's purpose in this ministry. From Elijah Among Us you will gain crucial knowledge of a widely misunderstood gift, helping you be discerning in these strategic end times.

"Elijah Among Us reveals deep truths gleaned from many years of understanding the prophetic gift. John is one of the pioneers of the prophetic movement. Those of us who cut our teeth on the prophetic by reading The Elijah Task have waited a long time for this book."
Cindy Jacobs, cofounder, Generals of Intercession
author, Possessing the Gates of the Enemy and The Voice of God

"With the brush of a master and the wisdom of a sage, John Sandford presents a gem that will shine bright and cast light for all those looking to know the ways of God on the prophetic pathway. I am personally delighted that this long-awaited sequel is now among us!"
Jim W. Goll, cofounder, Ministry to the Nations
author, Kneeling on the Promises and The Coming Prophetic Revolution

"Few have the ability to panoramically and prophetically view the past, present and future as does John Sandford. He serves the information on a nutritionally balanced platter that one can savor. It is with great honor and urgency that I commend to you Elijah Among Us."
Dr. Dutch Sheets, founder, Dutch Sheets Ministries
author, Intercessory Prayer
