The Bible in Rabbinic Interp. Vol. 1 Hosea
Rabbinic Derashot on Prophets and Writings in Talmudic and Midrashic Literature; Volume One: Hosea
Isaac Gottlieb, Jordan S. Penkower, Menachem Ben-Yashar

All rabbinic comments which deal with verses from the Book of Hosea have been collected from the entire corpus of midrashic and halakhic literature. Each comment is cited and explained, giving particular attention to its function as biblical exegesis. The detailed introduction explains Midrash as exegesis, surveys the scholarly literature on this topic, and introduces the method adopted in the book, to assign a biblical difficulty and a rabbinic solution for each piece of Midrash. From the series ''Sources and Studies'', the Institute for the History of Jewish Bible Research at Bar-Ilan University.
