Love Divine and Unfailing: The Gospel According to Hosea (Gospel According to the Old Testament)
Barrett, Michael P. V.
“One of the most urgent needs of the church is to grasp how the many parts of the Bible fit together to make one story-line’ that culminates in Jesus Christ. This series of books goes a long way toward meeting that need. Written at a thoughtful but popular level, it deserves wide circulation.”See All

“This book is marked by its exegetical insights, its practical and experimental nature, and its Christo-centric focus. Dr. Barrett gives a cogent explanation of covenant theology and the relationship of the various covenant administrations, leading to their fulfillment in the New Covenant. The people of God will profit greatly from reading this book.”See All

“Dr. Barrett excels in unfolding his views logically on solid exegetical, hermeneutical, and theological grounds. The book is compelling in its Christ-centeredness and is a masterpiece in expounding God's loving and gracious covenant in its internal and external dimensions. Every pastor should study Love Divine before preaching from the book of Hosea, and every Christian will find it enlightening and God-glorifying.”See All

After establishing the historical and theological backdrop for Hosea, the book focuses on the connection between Hosea's marriage to Gomer andthe Lord's marriage to his people. Though many were deaf to Hosea's preaching, even the dullest could see his grief, sympathize with his sorrow, and wonder at his persistent love. Hosea's marriage was a living sermon: What Hosea did for Gomer, God did for Israel; What Gomer did to Hosea, Israel did to God.
