A Daily-Bible-Reading Study of the Book of Ruth
By Deborah Bateman
Ruth is such an amazing book for not just women but men also to use as devotional material. For women, Ruth reminds women of their responsibilities within the family including caring for the family. For men, Boaz reminds men of their biblical responsibilities to care for and redeem members of the family when necessary.
Author Deborah Bateman does a great job of explaining the role of the kinsman-redeemer in reclaiming the family of one who has died. She also explains the relationships that are key in the story: 1) Ruth who loves her mother-in-law so much that she leaves her own family and homeland to care for Naomi in Bethlehem; 2) Boaz who marries Ruth as the kinsman-redeemer; 3) God who honors the lineage of Boaz & Ruth by becoming the ancestors of King David and eventually the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Book of Ruth by Bateman is a tender and valuable study for a week of looking into your own family relationships as well as your relationship with God.

As someone who enjoys finding the New Testament in the Hebrew Bible, I appreciated the attention to detail, the explanation of the Hebrew customs, and making the story relevant to my life so I could relate to Naomi and Ruth. Each chapter ends with a rendering of the passage in the King James Translation with a short, heart-felt prayer and study questions for further reflection.
I also appreciated that the book is Biblically sound and concise and written in a style that is easy to understand. The Book of Ruth, a Story of Love and Redemption, would serve as a helpful study guide for women of all ages.
This book would make a great study series for individual or group Bible study. It includes questions and topics for discussion and challenges for all readers. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a good Bible study with applications for today.
As I read this book are realized that the plans of God are unique and poles apart our own. This book can help you see Christ in a new light and help you believe the more in Christ's unconditional love. Mrs Bateman stresses that God knows our needs and how to meet them.
I highly recommend this mini book. Readers will enjoy it and learn a lot from it.
She comments on each passage of scripture, writes questions for us to ponder and record our answers to, includes the scripture passage, and then concludes with a prayer. I enjoyed this study so much that I also got the study by Deborah Bateman on the Book of Esther.
