The enduring appeal of Ruth's story has made it a favorite for thousands of years. How does a romantic story from dusty antiquity have relevance in the twenty-first century? Within this beloved story, there are keys to understanding God's will for our lives. As we take a closer look, at this ancient text, we discover precepts placed on every page (totaling 277.) Precepts are truths that lead us to a closer relationship and fellowship with God. J. Darline Peipman shows that every decision we make in life is guided by the precepts we consciously or unconsciously choose to make our own. Recognition and application of the precepts found in the book of Ruth and on every other page of the Bible, direct us into paths of righteousness. The precepts revealed in The Book of Ruth, Precept Upon Precept is a very good place to start bringing blessing into your life. J. Darline Peipman has worked as a newspaper reporter, a free-lance writer and public school teacher. Then, she and her husband were missionaries in the Eastern Highlands, of Papua New Guinea. She homeschooled her five children. This is her second book on the book of Ruth, the first being The Book of Ruth, Line by Line. She and her husband and family live in Westhampton, New York.
