About This Book
The book of Hosea lends itself well to a study of the interplay of traditions and an analysis of the modes of thought that belong to the northern and southern kingdoms. While its origin lies in the northern kingdom, its transmission has been largely in Judah. The history of the transfer of material is not one of uninterrupted continuity and, in tracing this, Emmerson seeks to provide an overview of the specifically Judean influences which can be traced in the book of Hosea, and thus better identify and examine the relationship of northern and southern traditions.
