The Old Testament story of Jonah and his three days in the belly of the whale remains one of the most memorable Old Testament stories. The tale, so charming and disarming in its simplicity and power, remains, by Jesus Christ's own testimony, among the unique signs of God's saving work in His beloved Son Jesus. SVS Press is pleased to provide this illustrated version of the prophecy of Jonah especially for children. May it serve to open our minds and hearts to the Gospel of Christ for which it is inspired to prefigure and signify.
