Ok, maybe I’m biased since I wrote my next soon-to-be-published novel, “The Runaway Prophet” based on the Book of Jonah! (Like my other two novels, it’s a modern-day story full of intrigue, drama and a little romance – ok, had to add a little to keep it interesting, and who’s to say Jonah didn’t meet a lady friend along the way?) Today’s Mass readings were based on Jonah, who was a prophet sent to warn the great and sinful city of Nineveh to repent. And they did…and God listened and saved them. Even Jesus quotes Jonah today in the New Testament. The thing I like best about Jonah is that he was rebellious at first (like me!) but finally gave in to God’s will – and was redeemed along with Nineveh! There’s so much more than the whale to the story. So while you’re waiting for my novel…pick up the Bible, it’s a great story!
