The book of Hosea tells a simple, biographical tale that contains rich insight into the relationship between God and his people—the Israelites of the Bible and the Christians of today.
In this pastoral expository commentary, Richard Phillips walks readers through the story of Hosea verse by verse. God tells Hosea to marry a promiscuous woman named Gomer. Time after time, Gomer is unfaithful to her husband, but time after time Hosea shows her love and compassion. Their marriage illustrates God’s continuous forgiveness for the Israelites, who have turned to other gods and idols like an adulterous spouse.
Phillips’ in-depth commentary explores the powerful metaphor in Hosea with detail and clarity. The historical, biblical, and cultural information provided brings needed perspective for contemporary readers. Just as it served as a wake-up call to the Israelites, Hosea urges modern Christians to assess their own commitment to God.
