World Magazine Review of “Jonah: Navigating a God-Centered Life”
Here is a quick excerpt:
“…Thinking I knew the story of Jonah cold, this book took me by surprise. Colin Smith’s keen, heart insights extracted from this tiny Old Testament Scripture are multiple.
Like Jonah: often believers are willing to witness little or nothing to unbelievers; often regular church-goers settle into a comfortable pew; often commandments folk neglect God’s straightforward command to minister to the Ninevehs around them; and often confessing members wallow in self-pity because of some small tragedy as opposed to the much greater tragedy of a dying world.
These personal truths, and more, all hit home, morphing this small volume into one big probing question for the reader - am I a self-absorbed Christian, as opposed to an interceding and compassionate Christian.
