What Are They Saying about the Book of Jonah?

  • By Rhiannon Graybill, John Kaltner, Steven L. McKenzie
Product Description

Aimed at a general audience, this book provides an overview of how biblical scholars have addressed important issues related to the biblical book of Jonah. Moving far beyond 'the story about that guy and the whale, ' this work leads readers to appreciate how complex a work Jonah is and the unique contribution it makes to biblical literature.


"Both erudite and readable, this book masterfully synthesizes recent scholarship on Jonah via a close reading, a survey of the book's mysteries, and a review of its reception across time."
--James D. Nogalski, professor of Hebrew Bible, W. Marshall and Lulie Craig Professor of Bible, Baylor University

"These scholars combine their expertise with clear and engaging prose, perfect for the undergraduate classroom or Bible study groups. I especially appreciate their discussions of the Jonah traditions in Christianity, Judaism, and Islam."
--Corrine L. Carvalho, professor of theology, University of St. Thomas

"This well-researched and easily accessible book manages not only to condense the major redaction-critical, literary, and reception-historical theories pertaining to the book of Jonah but also to offer new and exciting insights."
--Lena-Sofia Tiemeyer, professor in Old Testament exegesis, ALT School of Theology, Sweden
