The story of Jonah is ancient and often told, but even so, most remember it only as the tale of a prophet eaten by a fish. In Jonah: A Story of Mercy, author Jimmy A. Long presents the biblical story of Jonah with historical details of the time while weaving fictional characters and events that present the prophet as a real man fighting the call of God on his life. Beginning prior to his call to Nineveh, we follow Jonah as he runs from God, reluctantly obeys God, and is amazed and even angered at the mercy of God. In the process, we learn as much about ourselves as we do the prophet.
