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?

In Love in a Broken Vessel, with her potent combination of 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.

Masterful Bible Story Telling by Maureen on 3/10/13

This is the first book I have read by Mesu Andrews, but it won't be the last. Even the title has so much meaning, and it will be clear to you once you finish this book.
How could anyone sell their child, and into prostitution. What a hard life Gomer has had, but even with all of her sins God was looking out for her. Hosea, God's Profit, receives a message from God to marry a prostitute. Gomer is there, and she is an old childhood friend...indeed they have been on different paths.
This book is reading a living Bible...you feel like you are in the tents, markets, and even at the bloody battle scenes. Once you start this book, you won't be able to put it down, and it will move your spirit. Your heart will cry out for these people, and yet they have brought all on themselves with their worshiping of idols. Paganism is rampant, and their is so much evil. Satan has taken a hold, Israel has always God's chosen people, but they were turning their backs on him.
A very different read from my usual, but one that will be lingering with me for a long time.

I received this book through Revell Publisher's Bloggers Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
