Jonah Through New Eyes: The Reluctant Prophet
In their commentary on the Book of Jonah, Uri Brito and Rich Lusk outline the ways in which the prophet to Nineveh embodies Israel's disobedience to testify to the Gentile nations and how God's lovingkindness exceeds that of His stiff-necked people.
Bible-reading is more of an art than a science. The Bible is a story, not a lexicon of systematic theological definitions.
With this in mind, the Through New Eyes Bible Commentary Series builds on the foundational Biblical-theology work of James B. Jordan and other like-minded scholars in bringing you a set of commentaries that will help you read, teach and preach through the Bible while picking up on the rich symphonic themes and the literary symbolism of the Scriptures.
Because they are written for thoughtful Christians without being overly academic, these commentaries will serve as valuable resources for family worship, Sunday school or Bible studies.
