The Book of Ruth-A Story of Love and Redemption by Deborah H. Bateman is by Christian Daily Resources. It is a Daily Bible Reading Study of The Book of Ruth. The characters in “The Book of Ruth” deal with loss, lack, and romance. Through their many trials they learn to lean on God and His sovereign will for their lives.
In The Book of Ruth, Ruth was unknown. She was born in a pagan land, but through her relationship with her mother-in-law Naomi she accepted God. When Naomi decided to go back to the Promised Land, Ruth insisted on going with her.
Because of Ruth’s decision to follow Naomi to the Promised Land, and to accept Naomi’s God, Ruth ends up being a part of Jesus Christ’s lineage. She has a book in the Bible named after her and her story has been told throughout the ages. Ruth found her identity in God. She surrendered her life to Him.
