S 154 A Spiritual Reading of the Book of Jonah: On Being Turned Upside Down

£2.77

Cultivating an attitude of praising God in the midst of all things could be one of the most important spiritual practices available to us in our cynical and world-weary culture.

This study guide unpacks the topsy-turvy story of the prophet Jonah, and addresses questions of spiritual life and discernment with deft humour and gravity. It invites you to reflect and to pray; to talk and to listen; and to enjoy a spiritual reading of this unusual, at times offbeat, scriptural text.
