If you’re ever considering a girl for marriage, and she says that her favorite book of the Bible is Hosea, run. This happened to me. Looking back, I believe that all of the issues that I later discovered could have been predicted if I had paid attention to this one fact. Hosea ought to engender a sense of horror. I knew this, but also knew that most Christians aren’t very familiar with it. However, if a woman is sufficiently familiar with Hosea to claim it is her favorite book, she is sufficiently familiar with it for you to draw inferences from that claim. Claiming Hosea as a favorite book ought to inspire the same level of shock as claiming Psalm 38:7 or 137:9 as a favorite verse.
