All the prophets of the Old Testament are milestones along the road to Calvary, but the prophecy of Jonah opens a special window on the New Testament age, when the Lord Jesus Christ would be proclaimed to all the ends of the earth.

Top Highlights

“Jonah is probably thought of by most of us as the slightly tarnished hero of a really dramatic Bible story” (Page 7)

“To Israel he sent Elijah, then Elisha and, after them, Jonah, Amos and Hosea” (Page 8)

“The juxtaposition of the anger of Jonah and the abounding love of God brings together the ugliness of sin and the loveliness of the Saviour and sets them in the context of an unparalleled (for the Old Testament period) outpouring of God’s free, sovereign and saving grace upon the ‘nations’ (i.e. Gentiles).” (Page 105)

“Why did God want him to go to Nineveh and preach to the very people who, some forty years on, would be responsible for the total destruction of Israel?” (Page 11)

“Jonah is actually a unique prophetic presentation of the universal scope of God’s redeeming love” (Page 1)

. . . Commended for its solid and practical exposition. . . . This volume should be widely read.
