The Gospel According to Jonah

The book of Jonah teaches us the nature of true repentance through the story of a great prophet who turned from and against God’s call to preach the gospel to the city of Nineveh. In the midst of Jonah’s struggle to pray “thy will be done” we see God’s relentless pursuit of his servant and the great city of Nineveh. We learn that it is God’s kindness that leads his people to repentance and that he is faithful and just and will forgive our sins when we turn to him.
