Liz Curtis Higgs ~author, speaker, encourager~ is a favorite of mine, and I was delighted to get the opportunity to review her newest book, The Girl's Still Got It. We walk with Ruth on her journey from Moab to Bethlehem, as she leaves behind all that is familiar to her to go with her mother-in-law, Naomi, to live in a new land, with new people. As Ruth discards the false idols she was raised to worship, and devotes herself to the one true God, she shows a faith that is unshakeable. The future may be uncertain, but Ruth simply steps out in faith.

There are 2 others who make a direct impact on Ruth's life:

Naomi’s life may seem shattered with no hope and no future, but watch as the broken pieces of her life are mended back together. Her bitterness is reversed and great joy is restored as she learns God still has a plan for her too.

Boaz blesses the women with his kindness and generosity. He not only responds to Ruth in a manner that pleases and honors God, but is also a portrait of Christ as our kinsman-redeemer.

The real story of these people, as well as the symbolism and lessons to be learned make this both a satisfying read and an outstanding Bible study. Click on this link to download and read Chapter One. I have heard and read the story of Ruth numerous times through-out my life, yet I still learned new things reading this.

As a special treat, here is Liz Curtis Higgs with "Righteous Ruth Rap":

"I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review."
