Ogun Holder knew full well the Bible story of Jonah and the whale. His intellectual understanding of the tale led him to believe that running from God was futile. But because he had never run from God before, he thought he d try it anyway. Spoiler Alert: It didn't work.

I read this in 1 day.. I could not put it down. I loved how it was personalized and you could relate to the different stories through out the book.

I won this through Good Reads. The book looks very interesting to me as I like to reflect on where my life is going. I will try to write a review as soon as I can.
