A Prophet on the Run
OverviewAs the old adage goes, you have to ask the right questions before you can get the right answers. And that's exactly what the Not Your Average Bible Study series helps you do. Rather than spoon-feeding you with individual facts, this study of Jonah coaches you on how to think through the text as a whole. Tested and proven in Bible Study Magazine, it's perfect for group and individual studies alike.
Jonah was a rebel prophet. When God wanted him to preach a message of hope to Nineveh, a city in Assyria, Jonah traveled in the opposite direction. His story of failure shows us God's mercy--both to the prophet and to a people who didn't deserve it. It reminds us of God's mercy to us, and it challenges us to be ambassadors of that mercy.
Each section of the guide begins with a concise introduction, providing context for the biblical passage. Next, you'll consider questions designed to prompt your own in-depth study. You'll also find specific prayer suggestions, along with ideas for further research. Experience the joy of discovering biblical insights for yourself--then apply these lessons to your everyday life.
This is not your average Bible study!
