Hugh Martin on Jonah is both a commentary and a devotional classic. Referring to the unobtainable 1866 edition of this work, C. H. Spurgeon wrote: 'A first-class exposition of Jonah. No one who has it will need any other. It is not a small treatise, as most of the Jonah books are; but it contains 460 pages, all rich with good matter. It is out of print, and ought to be republished. What are publishers at to let such a book slip out of the market?'

Hugh Martin (1822-85) was one of the most outstanding men in that 'galaxy of gifted and devoted ministers of the Gospels' in Scotland during the second half of last century. After a distinguished university career, in which he obtained the highest mathematical honours, he entered the ministry and held pastorates at Panbride and Edinburgh before he was forced to retire in 1865 because of ill-health.

'All his writings', in the opinion of John Murray, 'exhibit an unexcelled warmth and fervour. No one could scale higher heights of sanctified eloquence.' His other principal works were The Shadow of Calvary, Christ's Presence in the Gospel History, The Atonement, and Simon Peter.
