Every decision we make has its consequences. Many are immediate within the context of our daily lives. Some do not manifest themselves until years, or even generations, later. That ultimately we must accept responsibility for them is an unavoidable truth. The story of Jonah and the Whale has been a staple to every youth pastor, even if less often preached from the pulpit. Nevertheless, it should not be dismissed as a mere Sunday School tale. On the contrary, it is read during the Mincha service as the haftarah on Yom Kippur in synagogues around the world. Its powerful message of repentance and forgiveness reveals a resilient clarity to some of life's abstract questions: Who am I? Why do I exist? What is the purpose of my life? And for the Christian: What does it mean to be chosen? This terse little book incites us to introspection while attacking our inclination for mendacity. The similarities between a recalcitrant Jonah and our post-modern illusions are startling, bringing a timely relevance to this ancient story. The author offers a candid disclosure of his own life and the consequences of tragic mistakes as he, too, ran from God's call. With every reading, new insight may be gleaned from this story.
