“Only God could write a story so touching as this” – Courtney Force, author of Soul Dancer
On January 22, Richmont hosted a gathering honoring President Timothy Quinnan’s new book, Call Me Jonah. The event included active audience participation during a Q&A group discussion, readings by attendees of favorite passages, and closed with a book signing of the fastest-selling debut novel in his publisher’s history. The sizable turnout included many Richmont faculty, staff, and current and former students.
When asked, Dr. Quinnan said that his goal with Call Me Jonah was to write a story that anyone could be uplifted by, regardless of age, personal faith, or worldview. Evidence of success in this aim was reflected in the diverse crowd that gathered to discuss what the book meant to them and how they felt a resonance with its themes. In addition to the title’s main spiritual and psychological themes, its overarching message is that “love is eternal and transcends everything in the universe, even our notions of time and space, reality, and life and death.”
For those who missed this event, a highlights video is posted below. Call Me Jonah is available for purchase at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and Ozark Mountain Publishing.
