C. H. Spurgeon recommended this book: "The Life and times of the prophet are set in a clear light; and the nature and design of his mission fully explained. The work is well done, and is by far the ablest English treatise on this subject." This work is a must-have for the minister of the gospel and it is a good study book for the layman, too. This book is one of the great classics, and is becoming more difficult to find in print in this modern age. It has been specially formatted as an electronic book and is much easier to read than many of the other electronic books, which are merely scanned and pick up blots and mistakes in optical recognition. This book's type has been completely re-set and annotated for clarity without compromising the original words. This book really puts unlearned Bible skeptics in their place who say it is scientifically impossible for Jonah to have been swallowed by a whale, or in fact any "great fish" in the Mediterranean sea.
