Religion of the Prophets: The Message of Hosea
June 1, 1952
June 1, 1952. Running time: 32:07. An interpretation of the social, historical, and narrative context of the biblical prophet, Hosea, and Israel in the 8th century BCE. For Thurman, Hosea "is concerned with personal piety, and the way in which that piety makes it possible for an individual to live a life worthy of God." Human beings must believe that "the ultimate destiny of man is a good destiny" and that "we can work, struggle and anticipate the redemptive process of the spirit and will of God."
