The Fifth Mountain
Plot and Story:
“But there Elijah stood, carrying out what had been demanded of him, bearing within him the weight of the war to come, the massacre of the prophets by Jezebel, the death by stoning of the Assyrian general, his fear of loving a woman of Akbar. The Lord had given him a gift, and he did not know what to do with it.”
Witnessing an invasion, watching a city being burnt down to char, fleeing in fear, returning to rebuilt the city, finding one’s way to peace – Elijah discovered himself to be greater than he ever believed to be. His epic journey is filled with so much inspiration. Tragedy is god’s challenge. Accept the challenge and take up the opportunity that only tragedy can provide.
