IVP Academic Hosea: Tyndale Old Testament Commentary [TOTC]

It is, perhaps, the most unique marriage in history; one that was based upon, and thoroughly saturated with God's covenant; the purpose of God's revelation. Hosea heard God's call to marry, what Israel herself was, a prostitute. As we enter this book, which unlike other prophets who are often powerful untouchable voices, or mysterious and enigmatic figures speaking from the shadows, Hosea is simple and straightforward, and most of all about faithful love.

Old testament scholar, David Allan Hubbard, takes us through this prophetic ministry of love in his commentary on Hosea and illuminates a tragic story of unfaithfulness, heartbreak, and judgment.

Outstanding for church studies, or any level of Bible student, this commentary will engage, challenge, and force you to reconsider just what it means to be covenentally faithful.

This is one of the best commentaries available on the book of Hosea. There is something helpful on almost every page. For extensive interaction with various viewpoints and detailed discussions of the Hebrew, other commentaries are probably better. But for what Hubbard sets out to do in this volume, he does very well.
