The book of Jonah is a narrative. The theme of this book is Gods great mercy. The purpose of this book is to show how forgiving and loving God is to those who repent. It starts with Jonah getting on a ship to go to Tarshish instead of going to Nineveh as the lord has told him to. He falls asleep on the ship and a great storm is placed upon the sea because of his disobedience. The storm stops once he is tossed into the sea where God takes a great fish and literally swallows Jonah. He was released from the fish once he repented for his disobedience. The lord told him to go to the city of Nineveh and preach the message that was spoken to him. Once the city knew they would be overthrown they prepared a fast and turned away from evil. After they repented God relented form the disaster he would once bring them.


The book of Ruth is a narrative love story. It starts with Naomi (the wife Elimelech) becoming a widow as well as her daughter-in-laws. This was due to the death of her husband and her sons Mahlon and Chilion.
