Hosea : The Passion of God
In the message of Hosea we see the passion of God. We see the jealousy of God, the commitment of God, the heartbreak of God, the enthusiasm of God, the love of God. People often talk about what they feel about God. Hosea tells us what God feels about us. It is the author's prayer that as we explore the message of Hosea the Spirit of God would reveal God's passion so that He stirs our passion: our jealousy for God, our commitment to God, our heartbreak at sin, our enthusiasm to serve, our love for the lost.

... the latest addition to the 'Focus on the Bible' series, reveals God's passion for His glory and His people's good. -- CBA Magazine This is an excellent commentary on an under-preached part of God's word. It is exegetically faithful so that there is a clear sense of what this would have meant to Hosea and his contemporaries. Moreover, it treats Hosea as Christian Scripture, and each part of the commentary takes us clearly to the Lord Jesus. This book has deepened my love for the One who first loved me, and I think it is a valuable addition to the existing commentaries on Hosea. -- Robin Weekes In his commentary Tim Chester has left few scholarly stones unturned yet we are not invited to behave as academic spectators on the text ...difficult issues are not avoided and the prophet's ministry is unerringly allowed to lead us to Christ ...The prayer that accompanies this commentary is that it might stir our passion for God and his ways and to that we add our 'amen'. -- Ken Armstrong This fresh, readable, insightful commentary will lead you to worship a God who is jealous for our affections, and loves us too much to leave us sitting comfortably in apathy! Christians cannot fail to profit from this sound and exciting read. -- Jeremy McQuoid
