Wolfgang Schütte, «Die Entstehung der juda-exilischen Hoseaschrift», Vol. 95 (2014) 198-223
The book of Hosea was composed a short time after the Assyrian conquest of Israel and by a group of Israelites that had fled to Judah. The kernel of the book comes from a series of critical statements about cultic personnel and Israel's society. The book integrated later reflections on national guilt and tried to infuse religious hope to the Israelite refugees in Judah.
