"Jonah and the Whale", excerpted from David Angus’ Moses and Other Stories from the Old Testament, introduces young listeners to Jonah, that well-known biblical figure whose refusal to follow God’s orders led him to be cast off a ship and held in the belly of a whale for three days and three nights until he repented, and agreed to accede to the Lord’s plan for him.
Voice actor Kerry Shale has a warm, friendly voice which kids will love, and his pacing is perfect: very even and easy to follow. For little learners, this is a great introduction to a classic religious figure.
This is a story from the Moses and Other Stories from the Old Testament collection.
Here are the main stories from The Old Testament: Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah's Ark, Abraham and Isaac, Moses, The Ten Commandments, David and Goliath, Jonah and the Whale, Daniel and the Lion's Den, and more. In these days where religion plays a diminishing role, it is important that we know the stories of The Bible not least because they appear repeatedly in art, literature, drama, music, and even in films and computer games!
David Angus' informal text especially written for this recording is brought to life by the friendly story-telling talents of Kerry Shale.
