Book of Jonah
By Peter Spier
One of the best loved stories of the Old Testament is a tale full of action, adventure and strife. Jonah is asked by God to tell the people of Nineveh to mend their wicked ways. Fleeing from this enormous task, Jonah sets sail and is thrown overboard and swallowed by a great fish. What follows is Jonah's journey to acceptance of God's love and grace.
A reference section at the end of the book shares historical and geographical notes about the story, including details about the ship Jonah might have sailed on and a fascinating discussion of its ruins in present day Iraq.
Paperback, 40 pages.
