Riassunto: Review
A glorious new novel emerges unfinished, cut off by mortality; nevertheless equally powerful in its living imagery, passion, and humanity.
Cynthia Ozick, National Book Award finalist and author of The Shawl and Heir to the Glimmering World --Cynthia Ozick

A sixty-year-old posthumous gift from the author of As a Driven Leaf, which was perhaps the most important Jewish novel of the twentieth century. Milton Steinberg's insights into the tormented, sexually betrayed, and perennially forgiving Hosea ring true and . . . present a full-bodied portrait of a major figure who until now was just a name.
Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, National Jewish Book Award winner and author of Jewish Literacy and A Code of Jewish Ethics
The greatest voice of the American pulpit reaches out to us from the past. The discovery of a new work by Milton Steinberg is a gripping and wondrous event.
Rabbi David J. Wolpe, author of Why Faith Matters and Floating Takes Faith --Rabbi David J. Wolpe

Product Description
A long-lost novel by the author of As a Driven Leaf. Infidelity, faith, and power all come together in a gripping story of the prophet Hosea and his wife, Gomer. This extraordinary literary find includes a foreword by Ari Goldman and commentaries by Harold Kushner and Norma Rosen.

The Lord said unto Hosea: Go, take unto thee a wife of harlotry and children of harlotry; for the land doth commit great harlotry, departing from the Lord.
HOSEA 1:2

From the moment young Hosea saw the maiden Gomer dancing at the Festival of Booths, he loved her. It was the most beautiful vision he had ever seen, and he would never forget it, despite the scornful laughter of his older brother Iddo, despite the lack of piety of Gomer s household, and despite her admission that she did not love him.

And so Hosea marries Gomer, in a troubled land where idol-worshiping neighbors offer up their daughters purity in the sacred groves, where arrogant high priests will stop at nothing to silence troublesome prophets, and where the blood of brothers can be the strongest bond, or the most destructive.

When Milton Steinberg died in 1950, he left one manuscript tantalizingly unfinished. Like As a Driven Leaf, it is grand in scope, while told as a compelling personal tale. Set against a backdrop of unrest in ancient Israel, The Prophet s Wife is a stirring portrait of the biblical prophet Hosea, his passionate and free-spirited wife Gomer, and a people seduced by the lures of power and idolatry to betray their faith.
