About-

"This is not a commentary in the traditional sense. One might call it an existential commentary. An important aim of the author is to bring out the relevance of the story, of the person, mission, and situation of Jonah, to Christians in our own time."

"Above all, this is a theological, or --more specifically -- a christological commentary. The author's chief aim is to relate the book, not to Christians, but to Christ. Ellul thinks Christ is the center of all Scripture, and he also takes seriously the specific reference which Christ makes to the sign of Jonah. If this reading is correct, and the Bible is indeed a unity, the exposition of Ellul, though not developed in detail, has a distinctive theological contribution to make."

"Those who want acute theological insight, and are not afraid of plain, hard-hitting application, will read this vivid study with relish and profit."
-- From the Preface by G. W. Bromiley

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Both traditionalists and the now-generation will find themselves here. . . . Ellul brings us into a state of sober reflection as he makes Jonah speak to our mind and soul and body."
-- Donald MacLeod, Princeton Theological Seminary
