“Prophet on the Run’ Devotional/Commentary on Jonah

Prophet On The Run by Baruch MaozBaruch Masz’s devotional/commentary on the book of Jonah is a thorough expository on the prophet’s story and how it relates to our own story.  On the surface, the story of Jonah is simple; however, if we never read past that simplistic children’s version, we will never benefit from the real message God wants to convey.

Jonah was more than just a man who was swallowed by a whale because of his failure to obey God.  Jonah was an example of God’s mercy–not just for Jonah but for the Ninevites as well.  In “Prophet on the Run”, Maoz delivers an excellent commentary on the culture and theology of Jonah as well as a devotional to help you get more out of the message of the book.  Maoz breaks Jonah into seven parts, gives a brief commentary and application for your life.  Discussion questions at the end of each chapter are useful in personal study or in a group setting.

I haven’t seen many focusing primarily on Jonah, so this one is definitely unique.  I recommend it for anyone seeking an indepth study of Jonah.
