The good news is, as of the publishing of THE WRATH OF JONAH, one does not have to dig it all out and put it together oneself. The Ruethers have done so in easily comprehended prose, concisely and comprehensively.

The fact that they have been able to do so in so few pages testifies to the simplicity of the subject relative to its by: Heart wrenching history of the land of Palestine, objective and eye opening as to the origins and development of the idea of an Israeli people/homeland, and the gross injustices purportedly carried out by successive Israeli governments/5.

The Book of Jonah calls us to examine the motivation of our hearts in serving God. Are we truly sold out to God’s sovereign will or trying to push our own agenda.
