Never dismiss Ruth as just a love story. It is a story of a woman who had to deal with the deaths of her husband and two sons. It is the story of a young bereaved wife who left her home, her family and her religion to follow the Lord and support her mother-in-law in her time of need. But most of all it is a story of a stronger divine power than you or I could ever imagine.
It is the story of the God who loved Ruth and had a plan for her life. He led her through the hardest of times, to a most wonderful conclusion, for although Ruth never realized it, she was destined to be the great grandmother of the most famous king of Israel, King David, and later through her line, Christ Jesus would be born!
This little book will guide you through the book of Ruth step by step and find out for yourself that it is far more than just a love story.
