Overview

Signs of Jonah emphasizes how the book of Jonah was received by its readers, and how it can help understanding of the culture and society of the time. Zvi focuses on how the audience would have read it, and even how they would have reread it, since books and stories are repeated and pondered time after time. He zeros in on indications throughout the text for how the text would have been read by its intended readers and actual readers. Zvi believes that the literary style and key literary strategies provide social commentary.
