    Rosemary Nixon's exposition on Jonah ranks among the best in the Bible Speaks Today series. Other excellent authors in the same series are John Stott and Alec Motyer.Jonah is a short book among the Minor Prophets in the Old Testament. It has only 48 verses. Nixon's commentary is some 220 pages long and provides a good balance between exegesis and exposition. Nixon's book is however more than just a commentary. It provides useful information on:1. historical background,2. relationship with other books in the Bible (especially the prophetic literature),3. detailed explanation of the text (exegesis and expositon), and4. application of the text.Nixon obviously thought through the implication and application of the text and is able to relate the text to today's situation. It is ideal as a reference for sermon preparation. Despite the attention to details, Nixon's style is highly readable. I can't recommend this book high enough.
