Genre: Biblical fiction

An epic journey of intimacy, rejection, betrayal . . . and hope

God gives Hosea a difficult command--marry a prostitute in order to show God's people the nature and depth of His love for Israel. When Hosea goes to Israel to proclaim the Lord's message, the woman God directs him to marry turns out to be his childhood friend Gomer. He finds her broken and abused, unwilling to trust Hosea or his God. But when marrying Hosea becomes her only means of escape, Gomer does what she's good at--she survives. Can Hosea's love for God and God's love for Israel restore Gomer's broken spirit?

Most of us are familiar with the biblical story of Hosea and Gomer—and touched by it, in many ways. LOVE IN A BROKEN VESSEL is a biblical fiction based on that true story, and it will bring it to life in a new way.

The book starts with a prologue that instantly draws you into the story. A brief scene, showing the when Hosea is approached by God with the difficult commandment – “Go, marry a prostitute” and the reason why because Israel
“has acted like prostitutes and abandoned Yahweh.”

It makes for a heart-breaking but eye-opening story for Hosea—and a glimpse into Gomer, making us see her for the used, broken vessel she truly was. If you like biblical fiction, then LOVE IN A BROKEN VESSEL is a book you will want to read. 448 pages.  $14.99
