Merry Christmas to Me!

My hubby is so wonderful! We decided to forego the usual gifts under the tree for each other this year in lieu of a post-Christmas shopping date. But Randy couldn't help it and called my gift a stocking stuffer, even though it would take one gi-normous sock to hold this treat.

I opened the gift and thought I had a bit of heaven -- 4 -- yes, count them, FOUR -- commentaries on the book of Hosea!! Wahoo!! This is hours and hours of fun!! A couple of them have an added bonus of Amos, Joel and Micah. What could be better??

I absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on these with a latte and some highlighters. These commentaries are probably my most favorite gift ever.

HOSEA, by James Luther Mays

First published in 1969, this one looks scholarly.

I am giddy.





The Preacher's Commentary, Vol. 22

Hosea/Joel/Amos/Obadiah/Jonah

Lloyd Ogilvie

I have already learned cool stuff skimming the intro.



Interpretation, Bible Commentary for Teaching & Preaching

Hosea-Micah

James Limburg

More devotional. Probably good, but not quite as much to chew on.





Hosea, Joel and Amos

Bruce Birch

Definitely worth a look-see!
