The book of Judges records the history of the nation of Israel in the Promised Land from the death of Joshua until just prior to the kingdom being established under King Saul. During this period, the nation failed God repeatedly, prompting Him to allow the pagan people in the land and surrounding areas to oppress them.

Jonah is not only one of the most popular books in the Bible—it is also one of the most controversial. Its historical validity is questioned by skeptics and scholars alike.It is the actual account of a man who rebelled and was swallowed by a great fish. But it is so much more.
It is the story about someone like you and me. It is the story of Jonah's struggles, calling, disobedience, problems, and prayer life. It is the story of his encounter with God and of God's gracious dealings with him. It is the story of a man, and of an entire city, that got a second chance.
