In this new book Fr Denis has chosen to explore the character of Jonah a somewhat unlikely hero. The prophet Jonah is a sympathetic partner, albeit a curious one, to help us review our lives. Although a believer in God, Jonah struggles to come to terms with the awful strangeness of God s choices, particularly God s mercy; he grapples to find his true self and purpose in life; he tries to flee from the presence of God; he is angry when he finds that God is not angry but all-merciful. Jonah is offered to us as an unusual teacher awkward, reluctant, disobedient, opinionated, fearful, flighty: the prophet who remains stubborn to the end.
