Overview

When Milton Steinberg died in 1950, he left one manuscript tantalizingly unfinished. Set against a backdrop of unrest in ancient Israel, The Prophet’s Wife is a stirring portrait of the young prophet Hosea, his free-spirited wife Gomer, and a people seduced by the lures of power and idolatry.

This exciting literary find creatively brings to life the prophet and his world, in a story that is both highly personal and yet grand in scope, exploring the relationship of the Jewish people with God. Essays by three extraordinary writers and thinkers provide startling, breathtaking interpretations to deepen understanding of the novel.
