Overview

A runaway prophet, a miraculous deliverance, a national revival, an embittered messenger—the book of Jonah is a biblical tale told from the intersection of tragedy, comedy, and divine oracle. Although it makes for riveting reading, it’s sometimes difficult to bridge the gap from Jonah’s reluctant yet extraordinary ministry to the day-to-day challenges of modern life. But this collection of commentaries and studies from the sixteenth to nineteenth centuries demonstrates that the prophet’s message is timeless—and so is the tendency to shirk from proclaiming God’s message to the world.

Featuring contributions from scholars across the theological spectrum, this collection provides insight into the various approaches taken to Jonah. In addition to commentaries, you’ll find numerous books drawn from sermons and lectures, providing not only solid outlines and analyis of every passage, but also clear application to the ordinary Christian.
