Jonah: The depths of grace (Good Book Guides)
“Here at Covenant Life Church, we have greatly benefitted from the small group resources from The Good Book Company. Many small groups in our family life ministry have used "Colossians: Confident Christianity" in their study of scripture. Additionally, our youth ministry has used "Romans 1-5: God and You" in their small groups. Both resources were very easy to use, helped the reader engage directly with the scriptures, and had a wonderful pastoral emphasis demonstrated in all the questions.”See All

“Thanks, Stephen, for bringing Jonah to life. And glad to see there’s now a Good Book Guide focussing on it. We’ve used GBGs from The Good Book Company before with our small groups, and have been blessed by their faithfulness to Scripture, Christ-centeredness, and helpful application. Is this the first one you’ve written?”See All

“In this study guide, Jonah: The Depths of Grace, the story of Jonah opens to our mind and heart as the demonstration of the amazing grace of God long before Jesus ever came to pay the price that made that grace possible for sinners like the Ninevites - and especially Jonah.”See All

The story of Jonah and the whale is one of the most famous in the Bible: but its message is perhaps one of the most ignored.
It’s a story about storms and sailors, rebellion, and rescue, preaching and protest. And it’s a story about one reluctant evangelist’s experience of speaking to people who knew nothing about God. So its message has great relevance today for God’s people, living in an increasingly non-Christian culture.
Jonah’s story will encourage believers who find themselves ill-equipped to share God’s message with colleagues, friends and family: and it deeply challenges our priorities in life.
But most of all this is a story about God. The book of Jonah reveals to us the depths of God’s grace, both to “outsiders” and to “insiders.” It shows us God’s compassion for the lost and His patience with His wayward people.
Use this guide to uncover the wonderful message of Jonah, and to come face to face with the greatest evangelist of all—the Lord our God Himself.
