Item description for Liberating Jonah: Forming an Ethics of Reconciliation by Miguel A. De La Torre...
Overview Reconciliation among peoples-why we need it, why it's possible, and how to bring it about. When a reluctant Jonah finally entered Nineveh to announce God's grace to the powerful Assyrian empire, God brought about reconciliation between the oppressors and the oppressed. Our world today, inhabited by both oppressors and oppressed, is also in need of reconciliation-between different ethnic backgrounds, socio-economic levels, and gender and sexual orientations. Liberating Jonah describes the significant role that can be played by the underrepresented and oppressed as instruments of reconciliation today. Accessible language makes this book appropriate for undergraduate classrooms and church study groups.
