Jonah is a 5-lesson study written by Doris Greig and updated, revised and expanded by Kathy Rowland. The book of Jonah tells the story of an obstinate prophet who said No to God s command to prophesy to Ninevah, and fled in the opposite direction. God pursued Jonah, bringing him to the realization that God s way is best, that he could do nothing by himself. The book of Jonah teaches us to obey God s call at once, the first time, and then prepare to be amazed at what God can accomplish through us.
Joy of Living courses are suitable for both formal and informal meetings, as well as for personal study. Each lesson contains a commentary and a week s worth of personal application and study questions, leading readers to discover fresh insights into God s Word. Historical background and maps are included.

Doris W. Greig is the Founder and one of the authors of Joy of Living Bible Studies. In addition to many Bible courses, Doris also wrote You Can Do It Too!—Opening Your Heart and Home to Share God's Love.
A graduate of South Dakota State University, Doris accepted the Lord as a young adult. Joy of Living Bible Studies began when Doris was forced by ill health to stay in bed for a year. The Lord used this time of rest, reflection, and prayer to launch her writing career. In 1971, Doris was asked to use her material to teach a Bible study. From that first meeting in 1971, in Newhall, California, Joy of Living has grown to include classes meeting both nationally and internationally. Through her life, which was yielded to the Lord, multiple thousands of men and women around the world have come to know the saving grace of Jesus Christ and have been established in the Word of God.
Doris and her husband, William T. Greig II, former Chairman of the Board of Joy of Living and of Gospel Light, had 4 children and 9 grandchildren. Doris went home to be with the Lord Jesus Christ in 2004, and her husband, Bill, followed her in 2006.
