The Book of Ruth is far more than it appears. It is one of the greatest short stories ever written, full of life and loss, tragedy and triumph, romance and redemption. But as has been said, Ruth is "multum in parvo (much in little)--a little book containing far more about God than its size would suggest." In these pages we see the Hand of Providence guiding history according to God's sovereign plan. We see patterns of God's grace worked out in the lives of the main characters, the same grace at work in our lives today. And in these pages we see Jesus, the One we celebrate this Advent season (and every season). Please join us as we study this magnificent story.
