Overview

Prophesying the Past focuses on the impact of tradition and history on the construction of the book of Hosea. Biblical scholar Holt examines the background of Israel to investigate how it is used in Hosea. She looks at common views of the book of Hosea, as well as presents new methodologies on tradition and redaction. Holt uses literary and theological techniques to search the text for meaning. The first part of the study is exegesis, followed by a section on prophetic tradition.
