Look Inside

There are many studies of the Book of Ruth available, so why one more? The book of Ruth offers more to readers than a familiar verse that is said during Christian marriage ceremonies. In Ruth, God tells us so much more than how to be a better woman or about the marriage relationship. Embedded in the historical narrative of this short Old Testament book are connections to God’s fulfilled promise of a Messiah and how God loves us and cares for us in Christ. The story is a wonderful picture of how God watches carefully over every little detail so His grace may come to fruition and fully abound. This history is just one link in a long chain of carefully orchestrated individual lives brought together for God to carry out His gracious plan for the redemption of the earth and all mankind.

The Holy Spirit is constantly remaking us, transforming us into Christ’s image and workmanship. Just as Ruth is about commitment to faith and to family, it is about God’s commitment to His promises even when we can’t see those promises being fulfilled. As you work through the chapters of this in-depth Bible study, you will come to see God’s holiness and wholeness revealed through the book of Ruth.
