Professor Mackay makes the prophet speak afresh to us. Of help to all serious readers of the Bible, this book brings out the timeless significance of the ancient prophet, and is a welcome addition to the literature on Hosea.
-Iain D. Campbell
It combines first-rate scholarship with warm evangelical exposition. It is clear, concise, well researched, and written from a pastoral and practical perspective.
-Guy M. Richard
A divine tragedy played on a human stage, Hosea portrays the heart of God like no other Old Testament prophet and Mackay exposes it brilliantly. Whether unveiling the richness of teh historical record, the prophet's exalted Hebrew prose, or the anguish of a jilted lover, this commentary successfully maps the intersection of human faithfulness and God's relentless grace.
