From Moab to Bethlehem...Journey to the King is an in-depth study of the biblical book of Ruth. Full of deep insights by author Cynthia Shomaker, it traces the footsteps of Naomi and Ruth and takes the reader on an inspiring journey from doubt, despair and defeat to triumphant faith and satisfying fulfillment. First taught to a small Bible study group, the 44 lessons in From Moab to Bethlehem address issues every person deals with, among them: the temptation to trust in earthly things, failed expectations, responding to loss, disillusionment and despair, past sins and other debilitating conditions, self-doubts and insecurities and false saviors. Along the way, it constantly points the reader to Jesus, the King, the true Savior and Redeemer, who much like Boaz, Ruth's kinsman-redeemer, is not only able to redeem fully, but to provide "exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think." This inspirational book challenges us to dare to leave our "Moabs" behind, venture by faith onto the pathway to Bethlehem, the "House of Bread," and find there in Christ everything we'll ever need.
