Abstract Elijah rises high in the religious traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Across the Old Testament accounts, the Word of the Lord continually summons the prophet to make journeys as advocate for the divine. However, Elijah's trek to the wilderness of Horeb (I Kgs 19:1–21), though marked by fear and despondency, may surface as one of his most significant sojourns. Here, the prophet's response to his own shortcomings marks him as a spiritual model rivaling perhaps all his previous achievements.
