Mailbox Monday: The Book of Jonah


Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday!  MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event.  Mailbox Monday has now returned to its permanent home where you can link to your MM post.

I got one book last week that caught my eye because of its intriguing premise.



The Book of Jonah by Joshua Max Feldman.  This is a modern retelling of the Jonah bible story, with a Manhattan lawyer cast in the starring role.  The whole idea really grabs me.  I want to see how Feldman turns such a religious story into contemporary fiction.

This definitely sounds like it could be really good! I think Bible stories are quite adept to being modernised, as long as the essence is retained! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great week!
