Product description


The story and message of Hosea, whose marriage to a prostitute is a parable of the Lord's covenant love for his faithless people.

From the Back Cover

'Go and marry a prostitute.' These are the first words God
spoke to his prophet Hosea. Why would he ask this of one of his special
spokesmen? Because he wanted to teach Hosea, the nation of Israel, and all
of us today a lesson we will not forget, a lesson that is painful yet
Hosea's sombre portrait of the human condition is our lesson in pain. All
of us have played the harlot by forsaking God and his ways. The picture is
not pretty but it's true. Yet Hosea's clear illustration of God's love for
us brings joy. While we are yet sinners, God comes to us and loves us.

Derek Kidner imaginatively takes us through the unfolding story of Hosea
and his wife Gomer, explaining the basic message, pointing out the
subtleties, and encouraging readers to lives lives worthy of the God who
loves the loveless.
