Jonah: A Study in Compassion

Robertson, O. Palmer

Pricing details

$5.00

The Old Testament story catches the imagination and tells of a prophet who disobeys God and of a great fish which can swallow a man; it describes a city-wide revolt in a pagan country and a wonderfully-sighted prophet sulking in the sunshine. What does it mean?

In Jonah-A Study in Compassion, Dr. O. Palmer Robertson’s masterly knowledge of the Hebrew language, his vivid sense of the grace of God and the twisted state of man’s heart, his ability to retell historical events and see their significance all combine to explain what the message of the book of Jonah really is, and -since there is a sting in the tail- what it means for us today.
