Summary

Pastor and New York Times best-selling 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.  

The famous story shows how, if we would understand the mercy of God, it will always take us in directions we would rather not go, toward people we would rather not care about, and ultimately into the deepest counsels of God. In a time of growing division, The Prodigal Prophet shows us God's love among people and how Christians must listen to God's call even when it takes them to uncomfortable places.

Powerful, practical and thought provoking

A very helpful exposition of the book of Jonah along with its relevance to us today. Well worth getting and listening to repeatedly for life application
