Jonah and the Meaning of Our Lives

Full Product Description

The book of Jonah stands unique among the biblical books of the prophets because it is almost entirely narrative. And, in contrast to all the other prophets who are portrayed as admirable individuals who bravely speak God s word, Jonah stands out as flawed, fleeing from God. We are drawn to Jonah because God gives him an opportunity to redeem himself. His experience inspires us to find our own second chances and our own paths to meaningful growth. "Jonah and the Meaning of Our Lives" draws on commentaries of Rashi, Ibn Ezra, Kimchi, Abarbanel, and the Malbim as well as contemporary culture and personal experiences to reveal the hidden meanings of this perplexing biblical story. In so doing, it explores many of the larger questions and topics we face, including human nature, our relationship with God, and how we understand ourselves and lead our lives. Rabbi Steven Bob s verse-by-verse commentary intimately connects the ancient wisdom of the text with the reality of our own lives, providing us with inspiration and guidance. "
