The implement employed in these two prophets to capture the attention and hearts of God's people is the symbol. In Joel it is the locust, a symbol of impending destruction. In Hosea the prophet himself--and his scorned but constant love--dramatically portrays God's message of grace and his call to repent. With his customary exegetical skill and theological insight, Duane Garrett guides us through these striking works of prophetic literature.
