The Prodigal Prophet: Jonah and the Mystery of God’s Mercy (Tim Keller)

$20.00 $17.50

In The Prodigal Prophet, pastor and New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller reveals the hidden depths within the book of Jonah. Keller makes the case that Jonah was one of the worst prophets in the entire Bible. And yet there are unmistakably clear connections between Jonah, the prodigal son, and Jesus. Jesus in fact saw himself in Jonah. How could one of the most defiant and disobedient prophets in the Bible be compared to Jesus?

Jonah’s journey also doesn’t end when he is freed from the belly of the fish. There is an entire second half to his story–but it is left unresolved within the text of the Bible. Why does the book of Jonah end on what is essentially a cliffhanger? In these pages, Timothy Keller provides an answer to the extraordinary conclusion of this biblical story–and shares the powerful Christian message at the heart of it.

The Prodigal Prophet

Jonah and the Mystery of God’s Mercy

The story of Jonah is one of the most well-known stories in the Bible. It is also the most misunderstood.

But there’s much more to Jonah’s story than most of us realize.
