Salvation Through Judgment and Mercy: The Gospel According to Jonah (Gospel According to the Old Testament)
Estelle, Bryan D.
“One of the most urgent needs of the church is to grasp how the many parts of the Bible fit together to make one story-line’ that culminates in Jesus Christ. This series of books goes a long way toward meeting that need. Written at a thoughtful but popular level, it deserves wide circulation.”See All

&dquo;With a sharp eye to the intricate literary workings and multifaceted theological meanings of the book of Jonah, Estelle achieves a fine balance between textural exposition and contemporary application. Careful to avoid allegorization and resistant to the claim that finding Christ in the book constitutes a Christian colonization’ of the Old Testament, Estelle offers a well-reasoned and circumspect Christological reading of Jonah.”See All
