Editorial Reviews

This lively book with rich gospel content is written in a lucid style that communicates easily to pastors and laity alike. It explains how the story of Ruth is part and parcel of the redemptive history that extends from Genesis to Revelation: the good news that God has provided our Kinsman-Redeemer, Jesus Christ, who grants us the forgiveness of sins and the inheritance of resurrection to everlasting life. God worked through ordinary OT believers in distressing situations to bring about redemption for a Moabite who became an ancestress of Christ. Our times of suffering too are opportunities for God to strengthen our faith and work through us to bring salvation to others.
One of the most urgent needs of the church is to grasp how the many parts of the Bible fit together to make one ‘story-line’ that culminates in Jesus Christ. This series of books goes a long way toward meeting that need. Written at a thoughtful but popular level, it deserves wide circulation.
At last a series on the Old Testament designed to provide reliable exposition, biblical theology, and a focus on Christ. These books should be like manna in the desert to pastors, preachers, teachers, and many individual Christians who struggle to come to terms with how to read the Olsd Testament.
