Description

Facing an assignment equivalent to being sent to warn notorious terrorists of God's anger with them, perhaps it was no wonder that Jonah ran away - certainly portrayed in Scripture as no "super saint", he avoided God and His call on his life. Yet God turned the situation around as pagan sailors encountered the living God who made the land and sea and the entire population of a city realised that although they deserved to be wiped off the face of the earth, there was a God of compassion and mercy who forgave them.
God's mercy is greater than our failures and through adverse circumstances and pain, a character of Christ-like compassion is chiselled out.

Endorsements

"This outstanding book not only presents the exciting story of Jonah interestingly, it also applies the story so that God can speak into our personal lives through it."

Ajith Fernando, Teaching Director, Youth for Christ, Sri Lanka

The strength of the book is that it echoes the ministry of a prophet, speaking God's words into a culture which resists that word.

David Meredith, Mission Director, Free Church of Scotland, Inverness
