Ruth: A Devotional Commentary
1 in stock
The Book of Ruth is not the longest of the books of the Bible - it contains only four chapters of text. 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. 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.
"... The church desperately needs to know the depths and the riches of the book of Ruth. This book rouses our hearts and lifts our eyes to look upon the faithful and loyal love of God for us His people."
- Burk Parsons, Associate Pastor of Saint Andrew's and Editor of Tabletalk magazine
