Christopher Brearley

72 pages
Some might recall the story of Jonah as being about a mighty fish, but really, it is about an almighty God who saves. Sent by God to Nineveh, Jonah turns to go in the opposite direction. When Jonah faces various trials and tribulations on his journey, he discovers the true character of his powerful and loving God, and the message of this reluctant prophet is applicable to every generation.

In this 7-session study, Christopher Brearley explores how:

  • Obedience to God is key
  • God does not rebuke to destroy but to restore
  • Our prayers are not only heard but answered
  • God protects those who trust in Him
  • We can turn from sin and be guided by God
  • God's love for us should influence our relationships
  • No one can prevent God's plans
  • Each session includes a Bible reference, opening icebreaker, discussion starter, and suggestions for personal application. Helpful notes for group leaders round out this Bible study, making it ideal for groups or individuals.
