The book of Jonah is one of the best known (and best loved) stories in the Bible. But it’s far more than the story of a man and a fish. It’s a story of the God who pursues lost sinners in His grace and brings them into relationship with Himself. Jonah chapter 1 shows us both the extent and the effect of God’s grace when it meets a rebellious prophet and terrified pagans. And it reminds us that the heart of God’s people must reflect the heart of God.
