Product Description

In the Message of Hosea, Derek Kidner takes us through the unfolding story of Hosea and his wife, Gomer, explaining the basic message, pointing out the subtleties and encouraging readers to live lives worthy of the God who loves the loveless. Hosea's somber portrait of the human condition is our lesson in pain. All of us have played the harlot by forsaking God and his ways. The picture is not pretty but it's true. Yet Hosea's clear illustration of God's love for us brings joy. While we are yet sinners, God comes to us and loves us. Derek Kidner is former warden of Tyndale House, Cambridge, and has written numerous commentaries on Old Testament books.

Publisher's Description

"Go and marry a prostitute." These are the first words God spoke to his prophet Hosea. Why would he ask this of one of his special spokesman? Because he wanted to teach Hosea, the nation of Israel and all of us today a lesson we will not forget, a lesson that is painful yet joyous. Hosea's somber portrait of the human condition is our lesson in pain. All of us have played the harlot by forsaking God and his ways. The picture is not pretty but it's true. Yet Hosea clear illustration of God's love for us brings joy. While we are yet sinners, God comes to us and loves us. Derek Kidner imaginatively takes us through the unfolding story of Hosea and his wife, Gomer explaining the basic message, pointing out the subtleties and encouraging readers to live lives worthy of the God who loves the loveless.

    Kidner is a top-notch scholar and gifted writer. He writes from a conservative perspective. If anyone is seeking a brief, reliable, and accessible guide to the message of Hosea, this is it. As is typical for this series, the commentary is very brief. It only deals with the main message(s) of each passage. For other details, a larger, more comprehensive commentary should be sought. However, this book meets it's stated threefold purpose: "to expound the text with accuracy, to relate it to contemporary life, and to be readable."

    I am currently using this commentary as I prepare to teach a Bible class on Hosea. It has a good balance between some technical knowledge of the text and heartfelt application for us today. This commentary is a good, useful tool!
