I has been too long since I added to my (very) slowly growing series on Jonah. So, when I saw that this magnificent little book was among the ones otherwise missing from the April carnival I could not resist.
We like our stories (fairly) simple, we want to know who the goodies and the baddies are. Neither life nor the Bible are like that. And if we think we have Jonah “pegged”, neatly boxed and labeled, then the narrator of the book has a surprise in store for us.
