Book Description

Ray Beeley here opens up the meaning of Hosea in a straightforward way, showing that they waywardness of God’s people, in both Old Testament times and New, does not prevent the magnificent display of God’s saving and sanctifying love.

The men whom God used to give the Scriptures were not prepared for their task in an easy, painless way. Rather, their experiences were ordained by God so that, when they delivered God’s Word, they could do so with deep feeling and conviction. This was never more true than in the case of the prophet Hosea, who painful experiences with his wife Gomer prepared him to understand the ways of God with his people. In explaining the meaning of Hosea’s prophecy, Ray Beeley makes frequent helpful reference to the writings of earlier commentators on the book.
