Jeremiah Burroughs's Exposition of the Prophecy of Hosea is a fine and mammoth treatment of an important prophet. Spurgeon called this work 'masterly,' noting that it is 'a vast treasure-house of experimental exposition.' No work on Hosea has since superseded this commentary.
Reading Burroughs is always a treat for the spiritually-minded. His writings are expositionally sound and reliable, sane and usable, warm and devotional. We pray that God will use this reprint as a valuable tool, especially for ministers and Bible teachers as they prepare messages on this graphic project.
-Joel R. Beeke, from the biographical preface
"Jeremiah Burroughs's "Hosea" combines exegetical rigor, theological astuteness, and experimental refreshment. In the great tradition of Puritan biblical exposition, Burroughs opens the inspired text, and has the text address the human heart. He mines the text for its meaning and doctrine, and translates his insights into wonderful applications. With great skill and ease, Burroughs sounds out Hosea's message - its threats of judgment, its calls to repentance, its promises of mercy, and its prophecies of Christ. Still today, Burroughs makes them resonate clearly and compellingly." -- Gerald M. Bilkes, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary
