This book is a helpful companion when reading the book of Jonah. The purpose of the book is not to add academic information, but to make the book of Jonah applicable and to present his challenge as a challenge to our lives. It reads like a series of short sermons, as William Wade takes a verse or a few verses at a time and draws out implications, relays anecdotes, and brings it all back to a main point: God is merciful to everyone, from runaway prophets to sinful cities. At times his conclusions may seem quite different to our own, but there are many helpful points in this book. I enjoyed the anecdotes and the way Wade makes everything as applicable as possible. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a small, easy read devotional as they read through Jonah.
This book is available to purchase from DayOne.
