The Judgment of JonahThe Judgment of Jonah by Jacques Ellul
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The theological perspective of Jonah: a miracle play was strongly influenced by The Judgment of Jonah, by Jacques Ellul. I highly recommend this little book to all who want to understand the book of Jonah. Ellul's message is no less than this: the story of Jonah is a metaphor for the Gospel; the person of Jonah is both messenger and message, like Jesus; and Nineveh is the world and our hearts. So, thanks to the forgotten friend who first recommended this book to me.
