Contemplations on the Book of Jonah the Prophet
The holy Church's concern over the story of Jonah the Prophet with the Ninevites has surpassed her concern for many other Biblical stories. She designated for it a feast, preceded by a three-day fast for the whole congregation in strict asceticism in order to guide us to repent as the people of Nineveh did. The story of Jonah is more than a prophet being swallowed by a large fish. This book will help bring to life the spiritual significance and depth of the story of Jonah the Prophet.
