Stephen Witmer understands grace. And he understands the book of Jonah. In his study guide, Jonah: The Depths of Grace, the story of Jonah opens to our mind and heart as the demonstration of the amazing grace of God long before Jesus ever came to pay the price that made that grace possible for sinners like the Ninevites--and especially Jonah. But there is a last chapter: "Jonah and Jesus." It all comes together and we are helped to see the big picture of the Bible--the depths of grace.

Thanks, Stephen, for bringing Jonah to life. And glad to see there’s now a Good Book Guide focussing on it. We’ve used GBGs from The Good Book Company before with our small groups, and have been blessed by their faithfulness to Scripture, Christ-centeredness, and helpful application. Is this the first one you’ve written?

The Good Book Guides have been developed to ensure that each session not only seeks to uncover the meaning of the passage and see how it fits into the big picture of the Bible, but also leads people to apply what they have learnt to their lives. Flexible and practical, the Good Book Guides are ideal for small groups, or individual study.
"The format is very user-friendly and the content is rich and accessible."

"God-centered, application-oriented, and driven by the text throughout, this resource is a gift to God’s church."
- Matt Smethurst, Gospel Coalition reviewer and Master of Divinity student at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
Here at Covenant Life Church, we have greatly benefitted from the small group resources from The Good Book Company. Many small groups in our family life ministry have used "Colossians: Confident Christianity" in their study of scripture. Additionally, our youth ministry has used "Romans 1-5: God and You" in their small groups. Both resources were very easy to use, helped the reader engage directly with the scriptures, and had a wonderful pastoral emphasis demonstrated in all the questions.
