Renowned theologian and pastor Dr. Timothy Keller takes a look at the well-known story of Jonah and the Whale in his new book, The Prodigal Prophet. The narrative of Jonah in the Old Testament is an account of a the prophet who was swallowed whole by a great fish. The story seems improbable, until its deeper spiritual meaning is exposed. Jonah's running from God, according to Keller, is a universal understanding of rebellious anger at God, lessons about racism, nationalism, self-righteousness, and political power. This is not your Sunday School take.
