Mark Yarbrough brings us a fresh study of the famous narrative of Jonah. The research is rich, the humor is hilarious, and the exposition purposes to do what the experience of Jonah and intent of the book was, and still is, about—to expose our hearts as readers so God can transform us.

Mark L. Bailey, chancellor, Dallas Theological Seminary

Dr. Mark Yarbrough—biblical scholar, theologian, and master storyteller—has given the church a wonderful resource in his latest work. Packed with in-depth insights, Jonah: Beyond the Tale of a Whale will challenge antiquated notions of Jonah as it encourages you to grow in Christ-likeness. You will never look at the runaway prophet the same.

Rebecca Ashbrook Carrell, radio host and co-founder, HeartStrong Faith Ministries

This practical guide to unpacking and understanding Jonah, a prophet that we think we know so well, but want to be nothing like, will challenge God’s people to develop and display a kingdom heartbeat for all individuals. You will do well to embrace the major challenges from this minor prophet, and Yarbrough helps us see each one as the book unfolds. This is a great resource for use in the church, in the classroom, or for personal growth.
