Is the book Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers based on the Bible?


Answer by  juliep (305)

It is based on the story of Hosea from the Bible. It doesn't take place during Bible times but during the 1800s during the gold rush period. A great story for anyone to read.

Francine Rivers' book "Redeeming Love" is a Christian novel. It has many parallels to the book of Hosea in the Bible. It tells a story of God's unconditional love and redemption.


Answer by  tamkees (3203)

The story is set in the Gold Rush of the 1850s, but Rivers book is actually a retelling of the book of Hosea. The book has a PG rating, but the crux of the author's point is that God loves His people unconditionally.

Yes, Redeeming Love is based on the Bible -- specifically, the story of Hosea. Hosea was commanded to marry a prostitute, who later committed infidelity by returning to prostitution.
