Reimagining Jonah

A Flight to Freedom

by Doug Wheeler

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
What would cause a proclaimed prophet to run away from everything he called home and dodge the unyielding God of his tribe? In "Reimagining Jonah" Doug Wheeler reframes the familiar bible story as one of heroism and self-actualization.
Devoted to an uncompromising commitment to selfhood, Dr. Doug Wheeler challenges the traditional assumption that Jonah was a miserable coward by examining him as a deeply conflicted, courageous, and soulful man. With a poetic flair, Reimagining Jonah provokes and confounds with language flavored by trauma and empathy, producing a richly contemplative and profoundly human version of this well-known tale.
