"Kona with Jonah is part of the Coffee Cup Bible Studies, a series of Bible studies for women in compact, workbook format that examine the "life and times" of certain Bible characters and the books of the Bible that pertain to them. Each study is to be read over a four-to-six week period, and study sections are broken down into short, daily segments designed to fit reader's busy lifestyles.Understanding that time is precious, the Coffee Cup Bible Studies are patterned in such a convenient way that they can be read during brief windows of opportunity that allow for meditation and study (breakfast, lunch, coffee breaks, etc.). Scripture is provided from the NET Bible (New English Translation), making Bible study convenient for occasions when you can't carry a Bible."In the eight century BC, Nineveh lay in the heart of the Assyrian empire. Its people entertained themselves by drawing graphic cartoons of violent acts. Their stomach for torture gave them a reputation as the world's most barbarous.In Kona with Jonah, a four-week-Bible study, readers encounter the character of God and their own need to embrace radical forgiveness. In seeing God's love for the murderous people of Nineveh, they come face to face with one whose mercy extends even to the most despicable.
