Product Description

Facing an assignment equivalent to being sent to warn notorious terrorists of God's anger with them, it is no wonder that Jonah ran away--he avoided God and His call on his life. Yet God turned the situation around as the entire population of a city realised that although they deserved to be wiped off the face of the earth, here was a God of compassion and mercy who was willing to forgive them.

Publisher's 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.

Editorial Reviews

"A faithful guide in helping us come to terms with Jonah's message for the church today."


"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."


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.


"Expect to be humbled, convicted, challenged, comforted and changed. The heart-warming, inescapable conclusion is that salvation truly comes from the Lord."


No matter how well you think you know the story of Jonah, you will be blessed and enlightened by this book from a gifted pastor who has both a good grasp of Scripture and human nature. In these pages we see ourselves, running from God but always brought back by God's intervention and grace. In this helpful exposition we will recognize the same providence and patience of God in our lives as Jonah experienced. Read this book and share it with a friend.


"Here is a pastor reading the book of Jonah and finding a preacher who wants settled ministry, not challenges; who wants to see his enemies crushed, not converted; who longs for God's grace in his own life, but not in the lives of others; who knows how to speak God's words with faithfulness, but who wants to see only the component of judgment worked out in reality; a preacher who is angry and who wants God to be angry too; a man who wallows in self-pity and hates it when God exposes that self-pity for the idolatrous arrogance it is. It is not difficult to see the relevance of such portraits in our own day. And what does it say of God, that he keeps working away at Jonah as he keeps working away at the Ninevites?"
