Designed to get the most from your efforts. The original Hebrew is the right side, and the English translation is on the left side. Contrast is how light exposes reality. Contrast is how justice exposes good from bad. Contrast is how your Bible presents God’s thoughts. For instance: The gentile mariners are alert with fear—the Israelite, Jonah, sleeps in the hold. The gentile mariners cry out to their God—while the Israelite, Jonah, keeps his mouth shut. The gentile mariners fight for their lives—the Israelite, Jonah, voluntarily forfeits his own. Contrast, contrast, contrast. Do we learn anything from these contrasts?

I have grandchildren who use this in their homeschool group, but I use it more than they do.

Met the author a a book signing for homeschooling parents. He seems to have solved my timidity of teaching Hebrew to Christian students. The book does all the work, but the publisher also offers flash cards, CD's, and other books (All under the title of The Jonah Project). Profound and simple. Rare combination.

Met the author at a book signing last week, where I bought a commentary on Jonah. I'm only half way through and I have learned more in these few days than I have in the last few years. Really like this book.

What a great insight to a Bible book that takes up no more than four pages in your Bible. Michael Ben Zehabe pulled out some fantastic nuggets that I completely missed. What a fun read that will stay with me for the rest of my life.

This was just fun--from beginning to end. Fun!

Mr. Ben Zehabe was a guest speaker at our church group. I learned fascinating details hidden in Jonah that I couldn't believe. Read the book in one night, but I will be re-reading it forever.

We read this in our Hebrew class. It was fun. I've never seen Jonah as a real person. That's what makes this book so cute, but educational.

I read this book last year, and adopted its use in my curriculum. The thing I enjoy most about this book is its surprising and unusual approach to understanding Jonah. A fresh way to teach this book.
