Product Description

There has been much interest in this small book in recent years---partly because of new discoveries, partly due to a change in our society's views on gender and ethnicity, partly from a reassessment of the nature of the relationships involved. Schipper's findings now replace Campbell's 1975 commentary. 232 pages, hardcover. Yale University.

Publisher's Description

In recent years, students, scholars, and lay readers of the Bible have been increasingly drawn to the book of Ruth. Delving deeply into the complicated nature of its characters’ relationships, Jeremy Schipper encourages readers to consider the roles that categories of difference involving gender, disability, household status, ethnicity, and sexual desire play throughout the text. This fresh translation of the deceptively simple book is more literal and less idiosyncratic than its predecessors. Combining the traditional strengths of the Anchor Yale Bible series with the latest research in biblical scholarship, Schipper’s much-needed volume will succeed Edward F. Campbell’s 1975 edition as the go-to commentary for years to come.
