Jonah's The Art Of Crossing Cultures: Critique Jonah

Satisfactory Essays
1. Critique Jonah’s actions using specific concepts from either the Intercultural Competence text or from The Art of Crossing Cultures.
Jonah’s actions seem no different than anyone else’s who encounters a culture that is different than their own. This expectation of everyone being the same and the superiority held about one’s own culture is easily seen in Jonah when he compares his life to the Ninevites. He even questions God as to why the Ninevites should receive His boundless compassion. This makes perfect sense if Jonah feels that his culture and his ways are the correct way to live and worship. His oversight is the power of God’s love and what He can perform. We are all only human, just as Jonah was, but it is faith that separates.
