Publisher's Summary

Both Isaiah and Hosea are writing at the same time, during the reigns of kings Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, 740-686 B.C. In Isaiah 1-35, Isaiah hauls Israel into court, charging her with unfaithfulness, calling out witnesses, and finding her guilty. The theme of these chapters is judgment. In Hosea, God says: "You know what I think; now I want you to know how I feel.” To tell us, God selects Hosea to deliver the message. To ensure that he does so vividly, he commands Hosea to marry the notorious whore, Gomer, who will be unfaithful to him over and over again. And each time, God tells Hosea to take her back.
Join Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy as he follows Hosea through the incredibly painful episodes of his life, as he delivers God’s message.


Audible Editor Reviews

Hosea must accept the terrible job God assigns him: marry Gomer, who will constantly cheat on him, and forgive her each time. Hosea's fate dramatizes God's relationship with the unfaithful Israel. Employing some of the Bible's most intense language, this text deeply examines sin, judgment, and forgiving love. Biblical scholar Dr. Bill Creasy balances intellect and humor in his lecture. He will certainly have listeners thinking hard but also laughing out loud as they follow this dramatic Old Testament story. Because it is a live talk, the sound quality sometimes suffers, but Dr. Creasy's strong voice overcomes. As a natural public speaker, he makes learning about the Bible a joy.

Terrible audio for a great teacher

Would you listen to Hosea again? Why?

I love Dr Creasy’s lectures and almost have them all, but this one was very difficult to listen to simply because of the sound recording. I know someone has commented about this and said they still heard every word, sadly this wasn’t the case for me and I’ve whole sentences that are too muffled to understand.
It’s a shame because it’s not only a book I really wanted to hear, but also because it doesn’t show the usual quality.
It really should be done again.
If this is your first book from Dr Creasy, I would suggest trying another one because you might feel disappointed to the point of angry with the quality and it’d be a shame to miss his work because of one bad recording.

What did you like best about this story?

Sorry, the whole experience of trying to understand what was being said spoilt the whole book for me.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Good but sound issues

The story and delivery is excellent, as usual, but the sound is as if from a long way off. Having said that, you can hear every word.
