    The Book of Jonah Preface Those of you who are familiar with the story of Jonah and the whale know that Jonah hopped a ship heading in the opposite direction when God commanded him to go preach to the Ninevites. You will also remember how God provided Jonah with a “living submarine” to get him back where he belonged. These dramatic conversions demonstrate that salvation truly is of the Lord, as Jonah declares (). Yet their story is also incidental rather than central to the book. The central focus is the Lord’s unrelenting pursuit of Jonah, the self-righteous prophet, who flings Scripture back in God’s face as his reason to be angry with God (see ).
