It pursues the book of Jonah and looks at how popular understandings of the book are on a collision course with academic/Christian understanding of the text.This book charts the mutations of a particularly buoyant sliver of Bible text the book of Jonah as it latches onto Christian and Jewish motifs and anxieties passes through highbrow and lowbrow culture and finally becomes something of a scavenger among the ruins as in its most resourceful move to date it begins to live off the demise of faith. Written at a point between Cultural Studies Jewish Studies Literature and Art this book is concerned with those versions of the biblical that escape proper disciplinary boundaries: it shifts the focus from Mainstream to Backwater interpretation.

Regurgitating Jonah: (i) Of Hot Chestnuts Fluid Puddings and Plots That Do Not Shelter Us: some ruminations on the salvific properties of the Bible and literature: (ii) Regurgitating Jonah: (iii) In conclusion Recuperating Jonah: the book of Jonah as the quintessential story and the most typical of Bible texts: Bibliography.Learned clever and playful book from one of the most gifted of younger biblical scholars in Britain a real feast.
