Redeeming Love - Biblical Story of Forgiveness and Redemption Retold
'Redeeming Love' is set in California's gold rush country in 1850. Angel, as a young girl, was old into prostitution when little more than a child. Unforgiven of herself and unforgiving of others, she strives to keep alive her hatred of the men that used her and left her empty and dead inside. But when there seems no redemption for her, she meets a man like no other, Michael Hosea.
A man who knows God as his father and who seeks his Father's heart in everything. Called by God, Michael obeys and when he meets Angel he commits himself to love her unconditionally. But this is not the end of the story, Angel is a long way from healed of her past. Yet despite Angel's resistance to Hosea in particular, and abhorrence towards all men in general, her heart begins to thaw. Even so, Angel is always on the brink of plunging back to the darkness, because she remains filled with an overwhelming feeling of unworthiness and fear.

Angel, sold into prostitution as a child, survives by keeping her hatred for men alive. Then she meets Michael Hosea who loves her unconditionally. Day by day, he defies Angel's every bitter expectation until, despite her resistance, her heart begins to thaw. But with her unexpected softening come overwhelming feelings of unworthiness and fear. So Angel runs...

“Sold into prostitution as a child, Angel only means of survival is to harbour a perpetual hatred of men. So when Michael Hosea saves her from the monstrous trade, asks for her hand in marriage and loves her unconditionally Angel’s hatred is strongly challenged. But how could this man love her, a prostitute? Filled with disgrace and shame she runs away ... but God always finishes what he starts.”
