Description :It's easy to get caught up in the dramatic details of the story of Jonah. Who can forget the prophet who tried to flee from God but was swallowed whole by a big fish? Let Robert Solomon take you deeper into the book of Jonah, and you'll soon be seeing this popular Sunday School account in a new light. For the story of Jonah is really a story of God's heart and God's mission. It tells of a loving God who pursues His people relentlessly—whether a renegade prophet, a boatful of desperate sailors, or a sinful city. It speaks of a merciful God who is always ready to give people a second chance. And it shows a compassionate God who is working in our hearts even as He challenges us to love others. Don't miss the beautiful truths contained in what Jesus himself called the "sign of Jonah". Robert M. Solomon served as Bishop of The Methodist Church in Singapore from 2000-2012. He has degrees in medicine, theology, intercultural studies, and a PhD in pastory theology from the University of Edinburgh. He is the author of more than 30 books, including The Race, The Conscience, The Enduring Word, The Sermon of Jesus, Faithful to the End, and Jesus Our Jubilee. He has an active itinerant ministry of preaching and teaching in Singapore and abroad.
