Overview

Excerpt from The Story of Jonah, the Truant Prophet: Told for Its Practical Lessons

Are any troubled about the inspiration of the book of Jonah, and the authenticity of the narrative? It is hoped such may find some help from the present chapters, which have been penned in simple form for young friends and for busy people who must necessarily read hurriedly.

Most of the uncredited quotations that the reader may note, were borrowed either directly, or at second hand, from the work of Dr. Pusey, which abounds in material gathered from the Christian Fathers and many varied sources.

Sincere and grateful acknowledgement is made of the kindly courtesy of the late Rev. H. Clay Trumbull, D. D., LL. D. and his publishers, Messrs. J. D. Wattles & Co., for permission to use the long and valuable extract found in Chapter XIV, and which, it is believed, contains matter entirely, or quite new to most readers.

If what is here written shall in any measure prove helpful to any, in strengthening faith in God; faith in the inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, especially this part of them; and faith in our precious Saviour who was, in various points, so strikingly typified by Jonah; the writer will gratefully consider that ample reward has come to his humble, yet willing and glad labor.
