Bryan Estelle combines biblical-theological, historical, and literary insights to illuminate the message of Jonah. He shows us Christ in each movement of the story and guides us to respond in faith and obedience.

Mark Futato, Robert L. Maclellan Professor of Old Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando

In this section-by-section reading of Jonah, Estelle offers a valuable blend of insights into the ancient Near Eastern setting of the book, interaction with its literary and theological subtleties, and relevant contemporary insights. Above all, he presents Christocentric reflections throughout, guiding the reader to see ‘the One who is greater than Jonah.’

—Michael Kelly, assistant professor of Old Testament, Westminster Theological Seminary

With a sharp eye to the intricate literary workings and multifaceted theological meanings of the book of Jonah, Estell achieves a fine balance between textual exposition and contemporary application. Careful to avoid allegorization and resistant to the claim that finding Christ in the book constitutes a Christian ‘colonization’ of the Old Testament, Estelle offers a well-reasoned and circumspect Christological reading of Jonah.’

—V. Philips Long, professor of Old Testament, Regent College

    A clearly written orthodox view of scripture. Jonah is not a parable as many other commentaries assert.
