Jonah: (2 Units)
Meeting the God of the Second Chance
Jonah is not only one of the most popular books in the Bible—it is also one of the most controversial. Its historical validity is questioned by skeptics and scholars alike. It is the actual account of a man who rebelled and was swallowed by a great fish. But it is so much more.
It is the story about someone like you and me. It is the story of Jonah’s sturggles, calling, disobedience, problems, and prayer life. It is the story of his encounter with God and of God’s gracious dealing swith him. It is the story of a man, and of an entire city, that got a second chance.

Here’s What People Are Saying!
“I truly was inspired by this study of Jonah. Just reading the ‘Introduction to Jonah’ had me so spiritually excited and enthused that I had to re-read it several times. So I knew I was in for a treat ‘spiritually’ when I began the lesson. And I must truthfully say, it has been one of the best lessons I’ve done thus far. I especially enjoyed the comparisons between ‘A Man’s Pilgramage’ and ‘God’s Providence.’ Again, thank you so very much for allowing me to do these studies.”
