Cover to Cover Jonah: Rescued from the depths


These helpful guides in the Cover to Cover series are ideal for group and individual study. Experience the reality of Bible events like never before and live through the inspiring lives of key characters in Scripture. Learn how to apply God’s Word to your life as you explore seven compelling sessions and gain a new depth in your Bible knowledge.

We might recall the story of Jonah as being about a mighty fish. But really, it is about an almighty God who saves. Sent as a prophet to Nineveh, Jonah turns to go in the opposite direction – but his journey imparts the truth of God’s love and purposes, which are applicable today, and to every generation. As you explore this Old Testament book, discover how God is a God who forgives, saves and restores.

These seven engaging sessions encourage us to consider:

  • the knowledge that God rules and no one can prevent His purposes
  • how God protects all people who put their trust in Him
  • that God’s love for us should influence our relationships with others

Icebreakers, Bible readings, eye openers, discussion starters, personal application make this a rich resource for group or individual study.
