From Mount Carmel to Mount Horeb” begins by diagnosing the prophet Elijah as depressed; he is preoccupied with morbid thoughts and negative self-attributions, his sleep has increased and he must be forced to eat. From naming Elijah’s depression it proceeds to explain his depression as a disintegration of his identity story. It traces the development of the identity story of “I am the only one” through the various high points of his life until it crashes under the broom tree in the desert. A new identity, story, found at Horeb, allows Elijah’s story and life to continue.
