About A Path to Redeeming Love

This forty-day devotional based on the classic bestselling novel Redeeming Love leads you on a personal, six-week journey into God’s all-consuming embrace.

We know that God loves us unconditionally. So why is it so hard to break free from the past and live in that truth? Inspired by the biblical book of Hosea, Redeeming Love introduces a love so profound that it forever changes Angel, a woman who had viewed herself as broken beyond redemption. With A Path to Redeeming Love: A 40-Day Devotional, you can immerse yourself daily in the truth of God’s unshakable love for you.
Personal essays from Francine explore key themes from the novel—Rejected, Resigned, Rescued, Redeemed, Reconciled, Restored—inspired by Scripture. In addition, each daily devotion includes:
• an excerpt from Redeeming Love, Angel and Michael Hosea’s classic love story
• Bible verses for meditation
• prompts for Bible study, prayer, and journaling to enhance reflection and application
Whether you feel stuck or hurt, confused or lost—or simply want to experience more deeply God’s boundless grace—this devotional invites you into a transformative understanding of God’s redeeming love.

With Millions of Copies Sold Worldwide, Beloved Novel Redeeming Love Gets New Spin-Off Book Products Ahead of 2021 Film Adaptation 
Redeeming Love by New York Times bestselling author Francine Rivers has become a timeless classic with its unforgettable romance and powerful gospel message. 
In response to the novel’s ever-growing fanbase after nearly 30 years in print in nearly 30 languages, Multnomah is releasing three new Redeeming Love products Oct. 13, 2020: (1) a Redeeming Love keepsake edition, (2) A Path to Redeeming Love: A Forty-Day Devotional, and (3) Redeeming Love: The Companion Study.
Longtime fans and new readers will get the chance to dive deep into this iconic love story and its biblical roots before it comes to the big screen next year. They will also get an intimate look into Rivers’ faith journey, hard-earned wisdom, and inspiration behind the bestselling novel.

“Hosea’s story in the Bible had a great deal to do with my decision to give my life to Jesus Christ,” writes Rivers. “I’d been writing love stories for almost ten years and realized how much deeper God’s love is for us than what we read in romance novels or see in romantic movies… While studying the book of Hosea, I felt the Lord nudging me to write His love story.”

The keepsake edition is a stunning collectible repackage of the original Redeeming Love novel, which was inspired by the biblical story of Gomer and Hosea. Set against the romantic backdrop of the historic California Gold Rush, this literary masterpiece details a broken woman’s journey through betrayal, hatred, unworthiness, and fear—and poignantly reveals how the determined love of a faithful man leads her to the One who loves her even more…the God whose unconditional love has the power to redeem the darkest of stories, including hers.
A Path to Redeeming Lovewritten with Karin Stock Buursma, is a one-of-a-kind devotional that invites readers to revisit the story of Angel and Michael and further explore the novel’s key themes: Rejected, Resigned, Rescued, Redeemed, Reconciled, and Restored. Each of these six themes begins with a personal essay from Rivers, reflecting on their significance in her own life as well as those of her characters. The daily devotions draw on excerpts from the novel and from Scripture, and prompt readers to reflect through Bible study, prayer, and journaling. A meaningful devotional with depth and heart, this book is a perfect companion to Redeeming Love for its many fans.
Redeeming Love: The Companion Study, written with New York Times bestselling author Angela Hunt, is a six-week study that offers readers a meaningful way to go deeper into the novel’s biblical ties. It explores Angel and Michael’s story as a metaphor for the love relationship between God and those He yearns to reach. Rivers unpacks this metaphor and the novel’s eternal message through personal reflections, key excerpts detailing Angel’s healing journey, and Bible study lessons that creatively blend story and Scripture. Perfect for both individual reflection and group discussion, this study will draw readers deeper into the life-transforming love celebrated in Redeeming Love. 
In an interview, Francine can speak to:
· Her personal testimony, including her family challenges such as near-divorce, and how her own redemption story is similar to Angel’s
· Her experience with writer’s block and how it resulted in the writing of Redeeming Love
· Redeeming Love’s role in raising awareness of sex trafficking and abuse
· Key takeaways from Redeeming Love, including the call to not let the mistakes or hurts in readers’ pasts hold them captive
· Her experience turning the novel into a screenplay for the feature film
