Publisher's Description

Life was bleak for Naomi. Her husband was dead, as were her sons. She found herself in a foreign land with only one friend--her daughter-in-law Ruth. But as she returned to her hometown of Bethlehem, a ray of divine hope broke through the dark clouds of providence. It was the barley harvest, and she wasn't alone. This cycle of poems by John Piper tells the story of God's care for Naomi and the love story between Ruth and Boaz through the eyes of their son, an aged Obed. As he narrates the account to his eight-year-old grandson David, the future king of Israel, readers will walk with Boaz from promise to fulfillment, with Ruth from widowhood to motherhood, and with Naomi from death to life.

Ruth: Under the Wings of God by John Piper is the story of Ruth told as a narrative poem. In the poem, David is being told the story by his grandfather Obed, as the story had been previously handed down to him. Later it is told from the great-grandfather Boaz’s perspective. Biblically accurate, Piper puts the story into a new form that is easy and quick to read, although not highly artistic. In previous publications Piper has written adequate poetry, sometimes stilted, but he is capable of telling a good story.

The poem is a rhyming poem split into four parts. At the end of each part is a prayer that pertains to what was just read. The poem also contains beautiful drawings and illustrations by Cory Godbey. Although written as a poem, the book comes across as a narrative story. It held my interest, and I wanted to keep reading to find out what really happened in the story of Ruth.

I would recommend this book, not as a stellar example of poetry, but as a good story to read to children or for general personal reflection. It is the companion to Piper’s A Sweet and Bitter Providence, which takes a more expositional approach to the biblical account. – Mindy T. Kreilein, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    Everything John Piper writes is worth reading, even if one is not reformed in his theology. This look at Ruth is both expositionally and practically sound, shedding insights on a small gem found in God's Word that more often than not gets a less than adequate look. I wish Piper would write more commentaries on individual books of Scripture. Perhaps this one is a start.
