A careful but practical exposition of the Old Testament Book of Jonah, O Let the Nations Be Glad offers seven sermons originally preached to Reformed and Orthodox Presbyterian congregations, including both the sermon texts and supporting biblical texts.
Through these sermons, Chaplain Jonathan B. Leach provides insight into the prophet Jonah?both the difficult man and his difficult message for Nineveh. O Let the Nations Be Glad presents the man with his human characteristics and shortcomings, but only against the backdrop of Jehovah?s gracious mission throughout the Old Testament to draw the gentile nations round about Israel to repentance and faith.
This collection of sermons offers an exegetical sense of the message of the Old Testament prophet Jonah and its various applications to the missionary needs of the twenty-first-century church in the West. It also serves to remind Christians of the mission of the Old Testament prophetic institution?to call not only Israel but all the nations back to the knowledge of the one living and true God.
