Love in a Broken Vessel


Love in a Broken Vessel
By Mesu Andrews
Combining in-depth research and masterful storytelling, Mesu Andrews brings to life a complex and fascinating biblical story of the power of love and forgiveness in the face of utter betrayal.
Hosea has been charged by God with a difficult task--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 God's message, the prostitute God tells 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 choice, Gomer does what she's good at--she survives. Can Hosea's love for God and God's love for Israel heal Gomer's broken spirit?



My Thoughts:
I love fictional novels based on Biblical stories. They get me intrigued and then I start looking deeper into the actual Bible stories, the background, the ways of the times. I LOVE Mesu Andrews writing style. I fell in love with them when I read her first novel about Lot and I've enjoyed this novel too. I loved seeing the story through Hosea's eyes and how deep his love for Gomer was, despite all the times she challenged that love.
