The 52 Greatest Stories of the Bible (Story #19): Unfaithful

The book of Hosea tells the story of Hosea and Gomer, through whom God illustrates His love for unfaithful Israel. Just as Hosea buys Gomer back from the bondage of slavery, so God in His love for Israel takes her back.

The story of Hosea is not just about an adulterous woman. It is our story. Despite our unfaithfulness, God is faithful to us.1
