Item description for Hosea Model for Marriage: A Biblical Model for Marriage Relationships by Glenn I. Miller...
Overview Concern for the success and condition of marriage ranks high on the list of worries about the health of society today. For those open to God's guidance in these matters, the prophet Hosea presents a biblical model that can be helpful at the end of the twentieth century, just as it was in his own day. Four truths provide guidelines for successful marriage relationships today. The author emphasizes the themes of commitment, the emotional cost involved in maintaining a relationship, the standard required to make that relationship grow, and the effects on other types of connections. With parallels between Hosea's model and numerous real life examples, the book serves as a guide for those striving to strengthen their own marriage relationships.

Correction to Previous Review, Webmaster please edit Feb 6, 2000
Hosea's wife's name was Gomer, rhymes with Hagar. Webmaster, please edit the mistake in two places in the review.
You can see why I did not fill out the opportunity to become a recognized reviewer....

Glenn I. Miller was a military chaplain and counselor before becoming a parish minister. In his years of military service, he gathered many case histories of those whom he served as marriage counselor.
In his book, Chaplain Miller shares bits of this experience where relevant, always anonymously. He makes the point that commitment in the presence of God is the most important element in marriage.
In the Bible story which shapes the book, Hosea's wife, Hagar, left him and became a prostitute. He wanted to reclaim her and by the time he located her, she was another man's property. His love for Hagar was so great that he forgave her. He had to pay her owner a sum of money.
Upon their return home, he established a period during which there would be no intimate relations. The couple would reestablish their respect and love for one another and set standards for their relationship.
Actually, in the case of Hosea, he set the standards. It would take a remarkable twenty-first century man to set this period of time and these standards. There are some remarkable men left. It would be even better, however, in this reader's opinion, if the standards were mutually proposed and agreed upon.
The book offers guidelines for standards. It is thought-provoking and useful. Chaplain Miller cites many instances in which the Hosea model has saved or shaped marriages.
