The book of Ruth, named after the central character in this account, is a captivating story of a widowed women’s loyalty to her mother-in-law and the resulting reward for her devotion.
That reward included a new husband, a secure future, and part of the blood-line of King David (Ruth 4:13 & 17) and Jesus (Matthew 1:5 & 16).
The example of Ruth shows how God helps and guides those who seek him and make him their priority.
A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 1,000-page website ABibleADay.com to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and many books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
