A wicked city, a rebellious prophet, and one really big fish. Most people are familiar with the story of Jonah. Unfortunately, the Sunday school version we remember from childhood often misses the narratives true emphasis: the totally unexpected and utterly shocking love of God. In this fresh retelling of Jonah, Tullian Tchividjian highlights the reality of Gods surprising grace, exploring how a careful re-reading of this incredible book informs the way Christians should view and interact with those around them. Drawing from the powerful imagery within the biblical narrative itself, this book recaptures the shocking effect Jonahs story undoubtedly had on the people who first heard itthe same shock thats desperately needed today among those who claim to know Gods heart.
