The prophets come alive when we see that just like us, they too often lived inconsistently. Jonah knew that God cannot be escaped, yet the prophet tried to escape him. Jonah knew that God is merciful -- yet Jonah tried to limit His mercy. In response, the Lord laid hold of Jonah and forced him to come (eagerly!) to Him. He taught the prophet lessons in mercy that are useful for us all. Jonah learned, as must we, that what we think about God determines how-and for what-we live. Originally preached in Israel, this devotional commentary is meant for every Christian who wants to apply the lessons of Jonah in a warm-hearted, practical way. Translated from Hebrew, this study does not ignore technical issues, but helps the reader to understand the issues by tackling them in non-technical language. Principles and applications are offered at the end of each chapter.

Baruch Maoz has ministered in Israel since 1974. He was the founder and chairman of a number of organizations that served the Church and sought to advance the Gospel in the country. He is the Founder-Pastor (1976) of a Reformed and Baptist church, Grace and Truth Christian Congregation, which conducted extensive evangelistic outreach, a recognized Diaconal work in Israeli society and a ministry among the deaf while insisting on the unity of the body of Christ in a church body consisting of Jews, Arabs and Russian immigrants. With a MA in Biblical Studies, Baruch is noted for his Biblical scholarship as well as his pastoral heart. In addition to editing a magazine for Russian speaking Jews in Israel, Baruch has delivered many theological papers throughout the world, with books published in English, Dutch and Hebrew. Among these are Malachi- A Prophet in Times of Despair and Come Let Us Reason Together. Though Baruch retired from the pastorate in 2008 he continues to write, preach and teach. He and his wife are active in the church they joined upon Baruch s retirement.Review:
