Bible Month 2018: JONAH

“Walt Disney gave us Pinocchio. Herman Melville gave us Moby Dick. The Old Testament gives us Jonah who, a bit like Pinocchio, has to be taught a lesson. Although there is humour in this absurd story, there is little to laugh about. Jonah is as obsessed as Captain Ahab; not with the whale but with his own brand of religion.”

The Revd Tom Stuckey, from his Introduction to Jonah in the Bible Month Magazine 2018
