The Prophet and the Dove

"Highly recommended"

Aug. 16, 2020 - Four out of five stars at GoodReads.com 

 

Biblical fiction isn't as popular as it used to be, which is regrettable. (If it just inserts dialogue into a Bible lesson, the results can be hideous, but that's true of any genre badly done.) At its best, it stirs the imagination and helps you to see a familiar story in new ways....

"A thought-provoking retelling..."

Aug. 8, 2020 - Five out of five stars at Amazon.com 

 

I thoroughly enjoyed “The Prophet and the Dove” by Kirby Lee Davis.

This story kicks off with the fabled tale of Jonah fleeing his prophetic calling by boarding a ship to head AWAY from Nineveh....

"The Story of Jonah Fleshed Out"

April 27, 2020 - Five out of five stars at GoodReads.com and Amazon.com

 

I grew up hearing the story of Jonah from the Bible, but it had never come to life for me as it does in this fictional tale. Through the eyes of the young narrator Benjamin, we grow to understand much about the possible details of Jonah's thoughts and actions concerning God’s leadings and expectations for obedience. We also learn about the Israel and Assyria of that time. In the process, Benjamin grows from having no faith to a faith that is seemingly stronger than Jonah's. Quite a good read!

"Unique perspective of Biblical history"

March 30, 2020 - Five out of five stars at Amazon.com 

 

I grew up hearing the story of Jonah, so I was familiar with the premise of the book. What I wasn’t expecting was the colorful and graphic experiences as told from the perspective of this former slave who would accompany Jonah on his adventure to Nineveh. The story brought the reality of ancient days and the struggle of proclaiming God’s truth along with a message of hope for future generations.

Kirby Lee Davis has put legs on the well-known story of Jonah. Extensive research enables the tale to come to life.... It’s an epic read.

"An exciting, unique telling of the account of Jonah."

Jan. 31, 2020 - Five out of five stars at Amazon.com and goodreads.com

 

This book is at once historical, dramatic and exciting while also presenting a message of love which I strongly suspect will lead neatly into the second book. Great book. I strongly urge everyone to read this book.

- Dana Davis

"I could not put this book down"

Jan. 30, 2020 - Five out of five stars at goodreads.com

 

I could not put this book down once I started reading it. The boy following the prophet as he struggled against God's instructions makes me think of my own struggles sometimes.

"A Good Read that makes you think."

Jan. 23, 2020 - 5.0 out of 5 stars at Amazon.com

Knowing the Biblical story of Jonah already, I was interested in seeing what this book had to add. Its narrative paints a vivid picture of historical Israel and Assyria that kept my attention. There is a lot to think about in this book. Fascinating...
