Have you ever felt like an outsider?
Life and loss. Love and loyalty. Intrigue, racism and ridicule. This story has it all. Set in the midst of one of the most corrupt eras of Israelite history, Ruth is a story about three compelling characters.
Naomi is an elderly widow who has lot everything and returns to her homeland empty and bitter hoping simply to survive. Ruth is Naomi's young daughter-in-law, also a widow, and a foreigner, who at great personal cost refuses to let Naomi face the future alone. Boaz is the local patriarch—a man of wealth and influence who in this epic tale is given the opportunity to do the right thing, even though the right thing might not be the obvious thing.
You will be challenged as you see yourself in these characters and find yourself faced with many of the same questions and challenges. Here is real life, lived out by real people with real fears, real struggles, real hope, and real faith.
Books are available through the church office.
