Leaving Judgment to God: Jonah's Struggle

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

Abstract

A close reading of Jonah through the lens of "things that make for peace" led to the discovery that the writer makes clever use of characterization to explore the theme of God's sovereignty. The method used in this close reading is inspired by the works of Robert Alter (2011), Adele Berlin (1983), and Shimon Bar-Efrat (1989) on biblical narrative.
