God's Unfaithful Wife: A Biblical Theology of Spiritual Adultery (New Studies in Biblical Theology)
Raymond C. Ortlund Jr. begins by showing how the Genesis vision of human marriage provides the logic and coherent network of meanings for the story of Israel's relationship with Yahweh. He traces the specific theme of marital unfaithfulness, first through the historical books of the Old Testament and then through the prophets, particularly Hosea, Jeremiah and Ezekiel. Turning to the New Testament he also shows how the sad story of Israel's adultery is transcended by the vision of ultimate reality in Christ and his church--the Bridegroom and the Bride.
This beautifully written book, a New Studies in Biblical Theology volume, is marked by careful exegesis and deep sensitivity. It is that rare thing--a work of scholarship that calls readers to love God with an ardor that suffuses all of life.

It is very good if you are a studious scholar. Ray Ortlund, Jr. uses a lot of footnotes in his book. The information is very thorough and accurate. I said I would recommend it to a friend and I would, but only to a brainy one!
