Item description for The Message of Jonah: Presence in the Storm (The Bible Speaks Today Series) by Rosemary Nixon...

Overview
The book of Jonah is mostly remembered for its oddity--a runaway prophet swallowed by a whale! But there must be more to the book than that. And indeed there is. For one thing, it is a book artfully constructed, with one chapter devoted to a psalm. It is a book that will reward careful reading and meditation. But more than that, in the drama of Jonah we find charted the course not just of this angular prophet but of Isreal's attitude toward its most despised neighbor in the Mediterranean world. Jonah refuses to answer God's call to go and proclaim judgement because he knows God is just the kind of God who respond in mercy and grace should the Assyrians repent. Jonah will have no part of it--until he is compelled. And even then he pitties himself. The irony of this prophet's story is amusing--but it reaches out and touches us where we are today. Rosemary Nixon's exposition explores the book in its own right and helps us make the connections with our veiw of God and his world today.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Message of Jonah: Presence in the Storm (The Bible Speaks Today Series)?

not that great  Mar 26, 2006
This is a pretty bad commentary on Jonah. There are few good insights and the prose is laborious and a really boring read. A better commentary (if you can stomach the maddening transliterations of the Hebrew) is Jack Sasson's commentary.
 
one of the best in the series  May 23, 2004
Rosemary Nixon's exposition on Jonah ranks among the best in the Bible Speaks Today series. Other excellent authors in the same series are John Stott and Alec Motyer.

Jonah is a short book among the Minor Prophets in the Old Testament. It has only 48 verses. Nixon's commentary is some 220 pages long and provides a good balance between exegesis and exposition. Nixon's book is however more than just a commentary. It provides useful information on:
1. historical background,
2. relationship with other books in the Bible (especially the prophetic literature),
3. detailed explanation of the text (exegesis and expositon), and
4. application of the text.

Nixon obviously thought through the implication and application of the text and is able to relate the text to today's situation. It is ideal as a reference for sermon preparation. Despite the attention to details, Nixon's style is highly readable. I can't recommend this book high enough.
