The book of Jonah is about God’s call for Jonah to be a messenger, to seek and save the lost, to go to the wicked, the pagan, and to those he despised.

It speaks to Jonah’s calling, his disobedience, his repentance and his second chance.

The book of Jonah is about God’s redemption in a lost world.

It tells of God’s passionate pursuit, how He speaks through pain and suffering, and the always-present hope for restoration.
