"Pastor and New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller uncovers the moving, provocative, and urgent message within the book of Jonah and at the heart of the Christian faith. Most people, even those who are nonreligious, are familiar with the book of Jonah: a rebellious prophet defies God and is swallowed by a whale. Less familiar to most people is the second half of this Biblical story--what happens after Jonah is released from the belly of the fish. Yet it is in this second half of the story that one of the most powerful and important lessons of the Bible is hidden.

Excellent - just excellent. Keller does not disappoint in his furthering understanding and interpretation of the bible. He helps understand Jonah himself and how Jonah's actions relate to our world today. Highly recommended as a group discussion, although reading it individually is also OK. But a group discussion will greatly enrich the book's material. ( )
