The Rule of Saint Benedict and “The Sayings of the Desert Fathers” are regarded as important pieces of religious text.

This is very noticeable in the comparison Landes makes between Jonah chapters 1 and 2 and chapters 3 and 4. The sailors and Ninevites who are pagan and do not have much knowledge of God cry out to Him and He hears and answers their prayers. This reveals to me God’s overwhelming love and compassion for mankind. Regardless of who we are, whether we are believers or not, when we call upon the name of the Lord, and the key here is in sincerity, God will hear and answer the prayer. Yet again, we see God’s grace revealed to those who ideally do not deserve
