Everyone likes a love story with a happy ending. The story of Ruth and Boaz has special appeal to believers, because we see in it an outline of our own spirtual history and our own relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, our Kinsman Redeemer, of who Boaz was a type. Don Fortner shows that this story has tow great themes, one hidden, the other revealed. The hidden theme is divine providence. The minute affairs of our lives, as well as the great affairs, the private as well as the public affairs of our experiences, are arranged and determined by God's wise and good providence. The revealed theme is redemption and grace. Boaz was Ruth's close relative, the one who had the right to redeem. As such, he portrays our great, incarnate God and Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, who has willingly fulfilled the part of the redeeming relative for us. As we comtemplate hi great love for us. which far exceeds the love of any on this earth, we are stimulated to deeper love and devotion to him and to his service.
