The book of Hosea presents a difficult mix of profound theology and historically situated abuse. Hosea teaches of God’s devotion to us and our responsibility to be faithful to Them and each other, but does so in the context of intensely troubling treatment of women and children. Jana and Natasha provide an insightful discussion on the themes of scripture and fidelity.
