ivp tyndale on obadiah, jonah and micah

Last night finished my IVP Tyndale commentary on Obadiah, Jonah and Micah; we'd done Jonah and Micah in the house group, and I finished Obadiah by myself subsequently. Micah was a bit of a plod, not much to Obadiah, Jonah easier going as you'd expect, with so much more story in it. The main thing I remember from Jonah was that I'm sure very often the familiar story told of Jonah is that he didn't want to go to Nineveh because he was scared, but it's clear that he wasn't scared, but rather that he didn't want to go in case they repented and were forgiven and not punished, which is indeed what happened.
