The Book of Jonah is a book of the Nevi'im ("Prophets") in the Hebrew Bible. It tells of a Hebrew prophet named Jonah son of Amittai who is sent by God to prophesy the destruction of Nineveh but tries to escape the divine mission. Set in the reign of Jeroboam II (786–746 BC), it was probably written in the post-exilic period, some time between the late 5th to early 4th century BC. The story has a long interpretive history and has become well known through popular children's stories

More than just a "Big fish" story, the book is full of contemporary themes that teach us about our own human nature and about a God who, if He loves disobedient prophets and even wicked cities, must surely care for us. Book Specs.

But anyways enough about my thoughts on the book. Let's talk about the nitty-gritty. The book was masterfully written as with most of Ann Rule's works

But anyways enough about my thoughts on the book. The book was masterfully written as with most of Ann Rule's works. Her profession has allowed her to write these true crime novels in such a way that the layman can understand and follow but she still uses the police and detective crime jargon. She makes it easy for her readers to follow along and even makes her books exciting by turning the facts and evidence into a storyline.

"Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown" (Jonah 3:4).

They burned their enemies or skinned them alive. Now they are doomed to destruction by a God who keeps His promises. "Woe to the bloody city" (Nahum 3:1). But when man repents, God relents. The God of second chances saved disobedient Jonah from the sea. But how dare He spare wicked Nineveh?

In the biblical mosaic of God, Jonah provides a major piece of the puzzle. After wrestling with some of the big questions ("Did the events of Jonah really happen?"), Jo Ann Davidson guides us through the four chapters of this carefully crafted book, often verse by verse. She analyzes the text as literature (scholars call this "Narrative theology"), exposing the hidden literary patterns, such as "Mirror writing" and "Panel writing," that provide clues to the meaning of the text.

More than just a "Big fish" story, the book is full of contemporary themes that teach us about our own human nature and about a God who, if He loves disobedient prophets and even wicked cities, must surely care for us.
