Hosea by Jennifer Rothschild/Facilitated by Kim Thweatt: The Book of Hosea is a deeply personal and passionate love story, yet it is a difficult story. As an account full of harsh judgment unfolds we find in its midst a rare gem: the truest and purest of loves. Hosea, an old-testament prophet, preached his own life message using his marriage as the sermon illustration. This study of Hosea looks deeply at that message. You will be guided to understand, but more especially to apply, the message of the prophet of love. Hosea showers us with hope and points to the coming of the promised Messiah. Be amazed by the love of Hosea for his wayward spouse-and more amazed by the unfailing love of God for his wayward people. (This class will meet at 5 pm and 6:15 pm in Wednesday nights)  Study Guide Cost: $14.00
