In this volume, now available in a
new casebound edition, James
Limburg examines Jonah with several
questions in mind: How did the story
originate? What is its place in the
Bible? How did the New Testament
understand the story? How has the
story been understood in Judaism and
in Islam? What might t mean for people
today? And what does it have to say
about God, about the human
condition, and even about God and
nature? In reviewing the book, Limburg
gives special attention to the many
contributions of artists, musicians,
painters, and sculptors who, he says,
may have been the best interpreters of
Jonah. He also keeps in mind literary
dimension of the text and takes great
care to follow the divisions of the book
as they were defined by Jewish scribal
tradition.

The Old
Testament Library
provides fresh
and authoritative treatments of
important aspects of Old Testament
study through commentaries and
general surveys. The Contributors are
scholars of international standing.
