Joan and the Fish: A Study of the Book of Jonah

9781522764632: Joan and the Fish: A Study of the Book of Jonah

Surprisingly, the story of Jonah might be similar to our own story. We may have never purchased a one-way ticket to a faraway city (although we might have felt like it at times) nor have we been thrown overboard only to be swallowed up by a great big fish. Preaching to people considered to be our enemy seems unthinkable. Nonetheless, as we examine Jonah’s life and peer into his soul, it becomes evident that we can relate to him in many ways. Jonah’s transparency teaches us about ourselves and gives insight into our lives as Christians living in the twenty-first century. God never gave up on Jonah because He had a unique job for Jonah to fulfill. As we consider God’s great plan and our involvement in it, we must remember that each one of us is called to be a part of this great plan, and that part is unique to each of us! This study offers fresh perspective and practical insight through biblical investigation interwoven with real-life stories. Each chapter contains thought-provoking study questions for personal reflection and rich discussion for small groups. This book will greatly benefit those who are interested in learning more about the Book of Jonah and how it relates to modern day life.
