Everyone knows the story of Jonah and the big fish, but the book of Jonah carries deeper significance than we sometimes realize. Jonah is a rebellious prophet who refuses to complete the assignment that the LORD gives to him. Why does Jonah run from his calling? The answer to that question gets to the heart of the message of Jonah’s prophetic book. This new and exciting study of the book of Jonah is written for a popular audience: laity, pastors, and students. Arranged in five easy to read lessons, the work includes the author’s original translation of the book of Jonah from the Hebrew text, a thorough expositional study of Jonah, a teacher’s outline, student handouts, and study questions. The format allows the study to be used by an individual, in a small group, or in a church class.
