When God calls Jonah to preach to the people of Ninevah, Jonah travels the opposite direction. He learns the hard way that disobeying God comes with serious consequences. However, God meets repentence and obedience with grace and mercy.
The colorfully illustrated Jonah, the Runaway Preacher is great for family reading time. In her timeless collection, Carine Mackenzie connects these biblical accounts to Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for our sin, offering forgiveness and an eternity in Heaven to those who believe and repent.
