DLT Books of the Bible are designed to reignite a passion for reading the Bible. A selection of Christian writers and leaders have each been invited to choose a book (or selection of books), and introduce it anew for a modern audience. In this volume, comedian Milton Jones introduces the Book of Jonah, and asks what it tells us about God that he would give so much time and attention to such an annoying man as Jonah. As bonus material, it includes the books of Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi. Each volume in this essential new series contains the text of the selected book, from the New Jerusalem Bible, one of the most respected and readable modern English translations. Over time, this will build up into an outstanding collection of books - a contemporary perspective on what the Bible means to us today, and a wonderful way to rediscover the joy of Bible reading.
