    I think it is very good book my preacher preached from this book telling us was his first time to preach it i found it shows Gods power and reveals what he will do for those who don't stay in his laws and word he gives chances but the people of nineveh just fell back to wicked ways. Like most of people in USA n world I pray for our country n world amen
