Book Description

1 May 1974 The Bible Speaks Today
The book of Ruth is a tale of charm and delight. Goethe
called it the 'loveliest complete work on a small scale, handed down to us
as an ethical treasure and an idyll'. Another writes, 'No poet in the
world has written a more beautiful short story.'

The books tells us about very ordinary people facing very ordinary events.
We meet Naomi, who underwent hardship in famine and bereavement but
eventually won peace and security. We meet Ruth, a young foreign woman
from Moab who attached herself to her mother-in-law, Naomi and to Naomi's
God. And we meet Boaz, who by marrying Ruth fitted into God's purposes for
history. Both King David and Jesus are numbered among their descendants.

Theologically, the story of Ruth is a story about God's providence. This
David Atkinson demonstrates clearly in his passage-by-passage exposition.

5.0 out of 5 stars What I've read is excellent! 3 Aug 2014
By Byron Talbert - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I must tell you that I haven't read the entire book because I was using this book for research for the kinsman-redeemer concept in Ruth 4. This book was worth the price just for the material contained in that section!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 9 April 2014

I haven't finished reading the book yet, but it's great so far. The book sheds insights to all these little parts of Ruth that I hadn't thought of before.
