Product description

Searching for Jonah offers a fresh, eclectic, and indisputably imaginative approach to interpreting one of the most famous stories in all of literature. The author, a lifelong Bible scholar, applies evidence from Hebrew and Assyrian history and etymology, along with scientific and archeological discoveries. The author concludes that Jonah was a state-sponsored evangelist and diplomat, acting on behalf of an official cult in Bethel. He was sent to Nineveh in Assyria to make alliance with a rebel faction that was friendly to Israel. In this he succeeded, and changed history.
