Hosea: the Prophet of God's Love



Hosea: the Prophet of God\'s Love


"Notwithstanding many interpretive difficulties in the book of Hosea, the theme of the prophet's message is on the surface: God's love is spurned but constant. God remains faithful to His covenant regardless of the unfaithfulness of Israel. Westerink's little commentary, Hosea: the Prophet of God's Love reflects that theme in the title and develops that message simply and concisely. Although not a technical treatment, the book offers a clear synopsis of the message with sufficient and helpful explanations of the text with pointed applications showing the relevance of Hosea for today's Christian and church. In addition, the reflective questions at the end of each chapter provide good fodder for meditation." ---Michael P.V. Barrett, vice President for Academic Affairs, Academic Dean, and Professor of Old Testament at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

"Hosea is the first of the minor prophets. His overwhelming message of the one-sided love of God deserves to be at the head of these prophets. Their message is still as applicable today as it was when it was first spoken. My dear colleague and friend, J. Westerink not only understands and explains Hosea's message well; he brings it close to our hearts." ---Lawrence W. Bilkes, emeritus minister with the Free Reformed Churches of North America
