To Aid Understanding
The Prophet And The Dove by Kirby Lee Davis is an epic story of the familiar biblical tale of Jonah. It is the first book in The Jonah Cycle.
Kirby Lee Davis has put legs on the well-known story of Jonah. Extensive research enables the tale to come to life. There is much that is familiar and with comprehensive descriptions the reader ‘walks’ through the action.
We learn about the heart of God and the importance of obedience. “When the Lord says go, you do not cast off His hand for lack of directions.” God will provide enough light for the step we are on. We can trust Him to guide us the rest of the way in His timing.
Wicked men come under the scrutiny of God. The Old Testament has some brutal and blood thirsty scenes.
“It was the way of the world… But it was not God’s way.” God has a different schedule to men. He builds His kingdom on love, grace and forgiveness. We need to emulate Him. “Our faith is founded on peace, bound by love”… I just love that.
The Prophet And The Dove was a powerful tale that is not meant to be read instead of the Bible but alongside it to aid us in our understanding of sometimes confusing Old Testament tales. It’s an epic read.
