Publisher's Summary

Interruptions: They're aggravating - sometimes infuriating. They make us want to tell people what we think of them. But how we handle interruptions actually tell us more about ourselves. The prophet Jonah's existence was interrupted by a call of God that would require a complete change of life. And it scared him enough to make him run in the opposite direction. Yet, what seemed to him to be an unnecessary and useless interruption was really an opportunity for Jonah to be involved in something the likes of which the Old Testament world had never seen before. This interruption was really a divine intervention and it held more adventure and possibility than he could have ever imagined.

We, like Jonah, tend to run from interruptions. When major pains and minor problems cause a hiccup in our carefully calculated plans and goals we head in the opposite direction. Who knows what we might be missing by running from what could very well be God’s means of steering us towards the most magnificent outcome of our lives. Jonah could tell us a story or two. So could you. And so does popular conference speaker and author Priscilla Shirer in this very personal account of opportunities lost and lessons learned - and the amazing freedom and fulfillment that comes from going with God even when He's going against your grain.

Needs Priscilla's Narration

Any additional comments?
I hope Priscilla Shirer will re-record this wonderful book in her own voice. She does a beautiful job on her other book, The Resolution for Women, and I feel her voice would be better here as well.

poor narration.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

i just couldn't get through listening because of the narration. The content of the book was fantastic. I am planning to buy it to read myself. I will sell back this audiobook - sorry to say it is not one to listen to.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

the narrator totally detracted from the content.

Great insights

This is my second book by this author and I have gained great encouragement from both.

The speaker was pretty annoying to listen to. She had great inflection in her voice that seemed to match well with the author's intended meaning, but her over-pronunciation of words was weird and down right distracting.

Amazing Book...Horrible Reader

I love Priscilla Shirer! She is an amazing woman of God! She is uplifting and inspirational. She write as though she's stood in your shoes and knows exactly what you need to hear! BUT...it is hard to hear her words in anyone else's voice but hers. Priscilla has a very specific way of speaking. Her dialogue and dialects are specific to her individual. The young lady who voiced the book...irritated my soul. If I'm being honest. She didn't read with the umph of gusto that Priscilla speaks with. She didn't "hit the marks"! It was very disappointing. I eventually bought the book and finished it that way. I could hear Priscilla speaking the book in my head. And I LOVED IT!

Disappointed not read by author

Initially, I was surprised not to hear the author narrating this book. That would have and still is my preference. It has taken awhile to acclimate to a different narrator and thus, has slowed down listening to the book. I hope that this will be re-recorded with the author's voice. Hearing the intonations, affirmations and just the encouraging, emphatic voice of Priscilla Shirer is encouraging and uplifting and promotes a greater impact on enjoying the book and pondering/aborbing the content. This narrator is okay, but since Priscilla Shirer is a speaker, fans/followers of her have heard her voice. And, once one has heard her reassuring, commanding,yet gentle voice, there is absolutely no comparison or acceptable substitute. Of course, the content of the book is excellent. Listening via Audible is very convenient, but I implore Audible to please change the narrator. It makes a difference.

powerful read related to Jonah that blesses

this is a well written book that takes Jonas experience and allows the believer to related to their life. There are so many application points and opportunities for powerful moments of reflection.

Changed my life!

This book literally changed my life. I went from feeling like a victim of my circumstances to being excited about what the Lord was actively trying to accomplish in me. That feeling has lasted 6 years!!!

What a teacher

What an anointed and gifted teacher of the word. When the Lord calls he definitely provides the tools and spirit to answer. This book was soo needful in my life and the passages she used were ones i needed to hear because they penetrated the barrier of fear and uncertainty to remind me the Lord doesn't leave us unfinished. Read this book, it will change your heart and bring you into deeper fellowship with your Saviour.

Amazing read!

This is a great book to read. I love the author of this book and decided to read it just because I enjoy her teaching. God has shown me so much of me in the process of reading listening to this book! I have been responding to God the same way Jonah did. Out of fear I have been running. I bought this book 6 months ago and just decided to read it. This book came right on time for me. GREAT READ!!
