Description:
The prophet Hosea discusses topics that stand at the core of Jewish thought – such as moral conduct, the correct mode of worship, the Jewish people’s relationship with God, and repentance. The Talmud even credits Hosea with developing the idea of repentance, a concept that has become the central theme of the High Holidays. Yet the book is filled with obscure words and rich imagery, which make it particularly difficult to understand. Through a detailed analysis of the words of the prophet and his story, Dr. Drazin unpacks the book’s messages for the modern reader.
