The story of Jonah is one of the most well-known parables in the Bible. It is also the most misunderstood. Many people, even those who are nonreligious, are familiar with Jonah: A rebellious prophet who defies God and is swallowed by a whale. But there's much more to Jonah's story than most of us realize.
In The Prodigal Prophet, pastor and New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller reveals the hidden depths within the book of Jonah. Keller makes the case that Jonah was one of the worst prophets in the entire Bible. And yet there are unmistakably clear connections between Jonah, the prodigal son, and Jesus. Jesus in fact saw himself in Jonah. How could one of the most defiant and disobedient prophets in the Bible be compared to Jesus?
Jonah's journey also doesn't end when he is freed from the belly of the fish. There is an entire second half to his story--but it is left unresolved within the text of the Bible. Why does the book of Jonah end on what is essentially a cliffhanger? In these pages, Timothy Keller provides an answer to the extraordinary conclusion of this biblical parable--and shares the powerful Christian message at the heart of Jonah's story.
"Superb . . . we should be grateful to Keller for his wisdom, scholarship, and humility."
The Gospel Coalition
"Tim Kellers ministry in New York City is leading a generation of seekers and skeptics toward belief in God. I thank God for him."
"Unlike most suburban megachurches, much of Redeemer is remarkably traditional. What is not traditional is Dr. Kellers skill in speaking the language of his urbane audience. . . . Observing Dr. Kellers professorial pose on stage, it is easy to understand his appeal."
The New York Times
"Fifty years from now, if evangelical Christians are widely known for their love of cities, their commitment to mercy and justice, and their love of their neighbors, Tim Keller will be remembered as a pioneer of the new urban Christians."
"Timothy Keller puts a contemporary spin on the familiar story of the prophet who disobeyed God and was swallowed by a whale."
