Ruth : Exploring the Bible
Full Product Description
Yet its significance is immense.
Ruth was a young woman from Moab, who came to be part of the covenant community of God's people. Consequently, she is one of only a handful of women mentioned in the genealogy of Christ: she begins as a stranger to God's people, and ends up as a mother of God's Messiah.
This remarkable story is both an example and an illustration of how sinners like us can become partakers of God's covenant salvation. In Ruth's story, God's grace worked in her life, bringing her from a place where she was far away from God, into an inheritance of covenant blessing. And just as she found her rest and satisfaction in her marriage to her redeemer, Boaz, so we find ours through union with the great Redeemer, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Read the story of Ruth and let the power of God's amazing grace grip your soul!

RuthJulia Bennett, via The Good Book Stall
Iain D Campbell starts with the story of Ruth then gives the setting and background of the book.
I must admit when I have read The Book of Ruth before, I read it as a book about loyalty, obedience and eventually love. I didn't realise there was so much depth and inner meaning to it.
The author compares the Old Testament person of Ruth with Jesus especially as Ruth was the ancestor of Jesus. If it had not been for Ruth following Naomi, the prophesies would not have been fulfilled. Ruth as a Moabitess was classed as an outsider just as sinners were classed as outsiders. In the Old Testament non Jews could not become followers of God whereas Jesus welcomed both Jews and Gentiles alike. By Ruth following Naomi she was going into hostile territory but she loved Naomi so she followed, everything that happened to Ruth was according to God's plan. It doesn't matter where you are, on your journey with God, if you are a new or a mature believer this commentary will really help you understand The Book of Ruth
