Hearing the word “Jonah” causes most people to think of the prophet swallowed by a great fish. However, the Old Testament prophecy that bears his name is more than another “fish story.” It’s the story of a great God who shows outrageous grace and mercy to broken people - even prophets! It’s a story that reveals the evangelistic heart of God and its implications for the church today. Finally, it’s a story loaded with practical applications for relating to those around us in the context of our chaotic culture.

Course Topics

Great Strom — Greater God

Mercy in the Middle of Your Mess
