Redeeming Love is a retelling of the biblical story of Gomer and Hosea, set in the 1850’s California Gold Rush. Michael Hosea, a single godly man, saves the life of “Angel.” Angel is a prostitute who was sold into sexual slavery as a child.
Francine Rivers on Redeeming Love
Redeeming Love isn’t just a romantic Gold Rush story about a farmer who falls in love with a prostitute. It’s a show-and-tell of how Christ loves each one of us. While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Michael’s love for Angel is sacrificial, life-affirming, passionate, redemptive. The world’s definition of love is shallow and short-lived. Christ’s love lifts up, restores, endures and is an all-consuming fire. It is a love that can be trusted because He never breaks His word.Francine Rivers, Redeeming Love the Movie blog post
