THE AWAKENING OF JONAH

From the January 1925 issue of The Christian Science Journal


THE manliness of Jonah under divine discipline is rich in wholesome instructiveness for the student of Christian Science. Although he is, perhaps, the most prominent example of a disobedient prophet in the prophetic books, his penitence and subsequent awakening are a beneficent example, a precious help, and a blessed guide to the loyal strugglers for the goal of righteousness,—and this because his experiences reveal the divine order of the purifying and molding processes and changes which become operative in thought as the spiritual idea enters and unfolds into manifestation.
