Concern for the success and condition of marriage ranks high on the list of worries about the health of society today. For those open to God's guidance in these matters, the prophet Hosea presents a biblical model that can be helpful at the end of the twentieth century, just as it was in his own day.
Four truths provide guidelines for successful marriage relationships today. The author emphasizes the themes of commitment, the emotional cost involved in maintaining a relationship, the standard required to make that relationship grow, and the effects on other types of connections.
With parallels between Hosea's model and numerous real life examples, the book serves as a guide for those striving to strengthen their own marriage relationships.
