Ruth — Beauty Among the Ashes

The Book of Ruth should be read when you read the Book of Judges. The biggest advantage is realizing that among the blood lust of Judges there is a beautiful story of redemption.

Reading Judges will be a tough read. Realize it’s not about the book telling us what is “right.” It is giving us a story of what is desperately wrong.

But read Ruth and be refreshed in the story of redemption among the rubbish heap of degradation.
