The Prodigal Prophet: Jonah and the Mystery of God's Mercy. Hardcover Book
Pastor and New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller uncovers the urgent, moving and provocative message within the book of Jonah and at the heart of the Christian faith.
We all think we know the story of Jonah a rebellious prophet defies God and is swallowed by a whale. Less familiar is the second half of what many consider to be a children's tale: what happens after Jonah is released from the belly of the fish. Yet it is in the second half of this Old Testament story that one of the most powerful and important lessons of the Bible is hidden.
Jonah's story shows how, if we understand the mercy of God, it will always take us in directions we would rather not go, towards 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 for people, and how Christians must listen to God's call - even when it takes them to uncomfortable places.
