Review: Running From Mercy

Running From Mercy is an Old Testament study by author Anthony J. Carter. This is a study on Jonah the Prophet and how we are much like him.

I wanted to read this study because our pastor recently did a study on the book of Jonah. This book met my expectations by reaching out to Seekers, Young Believers, and Mature Believers. The reason the author wrote this study is so the reader will learn much about the greatness of God’s grace.

I learned God had commissioned Jonah on another occasion to prophecy good news to the people of Israel (II Kings 14:24-27). I found the information about Francis Thompson interesting. (p. 32-33)

I appreciate that the way of salvation is made clear in the first few chapters. You are saved by grace through faith, and not of yourselves. The Lord promises to save everyone who calls upon His name. (p. 50) Page 53 explains that the only way to the Father is through the Son, Jesus. You can call on Jesus and be saved today.

I recommend this study to Seekers and young Believers because it gives the very basics of Salvation, and for Mature Believers who want to be reminded of God’s grace.

    Jonah is one of my favorite Bible characters. I relate to him and I’ve written posts about him. If you’re interested they are: Church Story and Angry at God?

    Having a better understanding of the scriptures is always a good thing. Sometimes it’s hard to figure out what certain verses mean.

    Have a fabulous and blessed day, Michelle. Big hug. ♥
