Abstract:This dissertation is an analysis of the literary structure of the Book of Hosea. It demonstrates that the prophetic speech types or literary forms and its numerous rhetorical devices are woven together into successively developing rhetorical units that effectively present Hosea's inspired message of judgment and restoration. This study adapts as its methodology a five-stage rhetorical-critical approach taken from James Muillenburg and several contemporary rhetoricians; and it also evaluates the structural divisions and remarks of thirty interpreters of Hosea spanning the late nineteenth century to the present. The majority of scholars surveyed agree in dividing the book into two parts: chapters 1--3 and 4--14. And they are largely in agreement concerning the subdivisions as well. A few other scholars following H. W. Wolff promote a threefold division of the chapters: 1--3, 4--11, and 12--14. The few remaining interpreters surveyed reject any type of hierarchical structure for the book and simply divide the text into discreet textual units of varying numbers. The essential structure of the Book of Hosea is as follows. It begins with an introductory Prologue or Superscription (1:1) and concludes with an Epilogue (14:9) in the form of a wisdom saying. Inside these demarcations the body of the book is asymmetrical in structure (chaps. 1--3 and chaps. 4--14) containing judgment oracles arranged in six cyclical units (1:2--2:1; 2:2--23; 3:1--5; 4:1--6:3; 6:4--11:11; 11:12--14:8) that serve to complement and reinforce the book's central genre---Yahweh's covenant lawsuit or ב'ד oracle delivered against Israel's incessant idolatry and harlotry. Although Hosea's generation was to be swept away in horrific judgment, Yahweh promises someday to restore His wayward people to Himself and to the blessings and privileges of the Abrahamic, Davidic, and New Covenants. The theme of Israel's eschatological restoration concludes each of Hosea's six cycles (1:10--2:1; 2:14--23; 3:5; 5:15b--6:3; 11:8--11), as well as his book (14:4--8).
