The Book of Jonah

"Jonah is different from all the other prophetic books in the Bible. Jonah is different from all the other books of the Bible—period! Jonah tells a story—a story filled with irony, satire, character reversal, and humor. Jonah wants you to laugh. Jonah wants you to be surprised. Jonah constantly throws the unexpected at you and waits a second for you to react. Jonah provides a negative example of how not to be a messenger for God. Jonah wants you to turn the negative satire around into a positive message." Trent Butler
