Description

He is one of the most famous and successful so-called wimps in both adult and children history, who likes running although not very good at it. He is the only man on earth who doesn’t eat fish, except they eat him, yet a hero for coming out alive and changing the course of history for 120,000 souls and more. In this illuminating use of Yonah’s (Jonah’s) journey, Tope Teniola unfolds the reality about why so many of us find ourselves running away from our purpose in life.

The book allows the reader, both Jew and Gentile, to see we all have choices in life and that life can be likened to running a race, but there are different routes for every unique individual. Whatever direction we choose to run, we should expect consequences that come from choosing it.

As a result of Yonah’s life changing episode, Tope reveals how we also can be liberated from the risk of spiritual deprivation and get back on track. The book also explores current day warnings and signs of the End Time and highlights the importance of true repentance and trust in God. Challenging and thought provoking for the times we are living in, ‘Why are you Running?’ will change the way you view home, death, commitment, your past, judgement and your call to ministry.

  1. Peter Loo

    “As long as we are alive, we are running the race of life. The question is whether you are running towards a goal or not. And even if there is a goal, a believer needs to ask whether it is one that the Lord has set for you. It may well be you are running away from God’s best.

    Tope has artfully used the narrative of Yonah, the runaway prophet, to weave in her own thoughts, struggles and experience as a runner towards God’s calling. Her run is intersected by a mosaic of imageries, contemporary cultural trends, testimonies, up to date news, words of wisdom and the knowledge of Adonai. They are all threaded together to bring out the tensions, distractions, emotional cost and spiritual struggle of one’s will to conform to the will of Adonai.

    This book serves as an encouragement very much like sharing a bottle of water to refresh a thirsty fellow runner in the emotional and spiritual ups and downs of the race in our lives.

    As her own specific calling is to love the Jewish people, she intentionally used Jewish names knowing and believing that Israel is very much in God’s covenant and that God has not rescinded.

    This book challenges you, as a believer, to examine your manner of running with that of Jonah’s, the runaway prophet, and it will help you to think and reflect on the many choices you make in the twists and turns of the course of your race in order to finish well.

    Romans 11:29 “For the gifts and calling of God are irrevocable.” It is in running the race that we get to know and love Adonai more and more, and whose Son has run and finished His course that in turn opens up the track on which we can now all run to win the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Yeshua.
