We are living in a time of rapid social and cultural change as we witness the turning of society away from long held Christian values. The recent census data shows fast growth of Australians claiming “No Religion”, and the steady decline of Christianity. And yet it is also true that the season we find ourselves in is hardly unique to us. Throughout history, God’s people have been here before and have witnessed times of amazing gospel impact in a godless culture. Jonah 3 tells us of one such event, and provides us with a precious truth: God’s Word has power to bring repentance and redemption in the darkest of places.
