Can anyone escape God? No. Jonah is a perfect example of a person who tried to escape and failed, because God caught up to him.
Prophet on the Run, by Baruch Maoz, was written as a devotional commentary for Christen who want to apply the lessons learned in the book of Jonah. This book has seven chapters which contain Bible verses, information, a summary, prayer, and discussion questions.
My thoughts- I thought Prophet on the Run, by Baruch Maoz was a thought provoking book and I learned how important it is to listen when God speaks to me. There were many times when God spoke to Jonah and he failed to listen. It was only when he listened that God was able to help him learn and see the errors of his ways.
There were many great parts to Prophet on the Run. The ones I liked the best were the very involved summaries and thought provoking questions. The summaries were so helpful when when I came to the end of each chapter. I could really take away the most important parts of the chapter and spend time thinking about how they applied to my life. After I spent time on the summaries, I could then answer the questions. There were prayers in each chapter as well, so I spent time on them after I finished everything else in the chapter. I learned that I should never turn down what God asks of me.
This is an important book for everyone to read and learn from. I highly recommend it.
