So often, just like Jonah, we are blinded by our situations, culture, or our own hearts. So often we ignore what we know God is calling us to do - and we are always left feeling incomplete and far from Him.
Anywhere but Nineveh is a thirty day devotional which inspires and focuses the mind, not on our rebellion, but instead on a God who speaks to us and on "One greater than Jonah" Who did not run away.
Frank Sellar has been ministering in Ireland and Northern Ireland for the last three decades. He and his wife Claire have three children.
Through a skilful re-telling of Jonah's story, this gem of a book has pastoral warmth, penetrating application, and a simplicity and directness that will challenge and inspire your walk with God. It exposes our fears, helps us to pray, points us to Christ, and refreshes our souls. Prayerfully read a section each day, and within the month your understanding of God and your motivation to serve Him will surely have changed!
Minister–at–large for Keswick Ministries, IFES Vice President, and former Director, Langham Preaching
In all of his phases, Frank Sellar has been consistent - a man sold out for the good news of Jesus, committed to encouraging any form of positive ministry to the weird and wonderful thing that is church, and someone whose generosity and encouragement always leaves us thankful for the encounter.
I know reading this book will do the same for you.
Some books take much reading and leave little impression. This wonderful book takes little reading but leaves a deep impression. Daily portions of Jonah make for a rich diet - edifying, humbling and encouraging, with challenging insight and perceptive prayer. One cannot but fail to travel with Jonah into a deeper awareness of the purposes of God, ultimately to be found in the Lord Jesus Christ. This is a book rich in the grace that drives us to our knees and to the heart of our loving, forgiving, sovereign Lord.
