Following the storyline of Hosea and Gomer, and using only the words of the ancient Hebrew prophets, The Prophet Project is a visceral, beautiful retelling of God’s relentless love for humanity. Challenging and encouraging, disturbing and inspiring, it is an unique opportunity to grow in one’s own faith, as well as to invite non-Christian lovers of art, and to help Jewish friends see echoes of Christ in Scripture.
