Jonah’s Misdirected Message »

[Originally published in The Fort Bend Herald]  Perhaps no Old Testament narrative receives quite the beating Jonah does by those who are unable to accept its account.  It is, after all, the story of a great miracle.  Strangely enough, most of those who reject it as truth are denying the wrong miracle altogether, as Jonah’s […]

Fighting ‘Bigotry’ with Bigotry »
