Product Description

The prophets come alive when we see that just like us, they too often lived inconsistently.

Jonah knew that God cannot be escaped, yet the prophet tried to escape him. Jonah knew that God is merciful, yet Jonah tried to limit His mercy. In response, the Lord laid hold of Jonah and forced him to come (eagerly!) to Him. He taught the prophet lessons in mercy that are useful for us all. Jonah learned, as must we, that what we think about God determines how - and for what - we live.

Originally preached in Israel, this devotional commentary is meant for every Christian who wants to apply the lessons of Jonah in a warm-hearted, practical way. Translated from Hebrew, this study does not ignore technical issues, but helps the reader to understand the issues by tackling them in non-technical language. Principles and applications are offered at the end of each chapter.

Publisher's Description

This warmhearted devotional commentary originated as a sermon series and is meant for every Christian who wants to apply the lessons of Jonah in a practical way. Like us, Jonah often lived inconsistently. He knew that God cannot be escaped yet he tried to escape. He knew that God is merciful yet he tried to limit His mercy. The Lord took hold of Jonah and forced him to come to Him. What we think about God determines how we live; like Jonah, we must learn God's mercy.

    Baruch Masz's devotional/commentary on the book of Jonah is a thorough expository on the prophet's story and how it relates to our own story. On the surface, the story of Jonah is simple; however, if we never read past that simplistic children's version, we will never benefit from the real message God wants to convey.

    Jonah was more than just a man who was swallowed by a whale because of his failure to obey God. Jonah was an example of God's mercy--not just for Jonah but for the Ninevites as well. In "Prophet on the Run", Maoz delivers an excellent commentary on the culture and theology of Jonah as well as a devotional to help you get more out of the message of the book. Maoz breaks Jonah into seven parts, gives a brief commentary and application for your life. Discussion questions at the end of each chapter are useful in personal study or in a group setting.

    I haven't seen many focusing primarily on Jonah, so this one is definitely unique. I recommend it for anyone seeking an indepth study of Jonah.
