Timothy Keller, pastor and New York Times bestselling author, shows the hidden depths within the book of Jonah, the most misunderstood parable in the Bible.
The story of Jonah isn't just the most well-known parable in the Bible, it's the most misunderstood. Even non-religious people are familiar with the story of Jonah: a rebellious prophet who defies God and is swallowed by a whale. Yet, there's so much more to Jonah's story than many of us realize.
In Rediscovering Jonah, Timothy Keller reveals the hidden depths within the book of Jonah. Keller establishes Jonah as one of the worst prophets in the whole Bible, and yet there is a clear connection between Jonah, the prodigal son, and Jesus. In fact, Jesus did see Himself in Jonah. How could one of the most defiant and disobedient prophets in the Bible be compared to Christ?
Jonah's journey doesn't end when he is freed from the belly of the fish. There's a whole second half to his story, but it's left unresolved within the text of the Bible. Why does the book of Jonah end on what is essentially a cliffhanger? In this book, Timothy Keller offers an answer to the extraordinary conclusion of this biblical parable, and reveals the powerful Christian message the heart of Jonah's story.
