Want an easy-to-read and informative study on the book of Ruth? Look no further. Liz Curtis Higgs has done extensive research and uses her heartfelt storytelling to bring the drama to life. We, the readers, are the on-lookers...trying to understand what took place and why it matters. Liz is our guide, taking us through each verse and adding in cultural background and application to our lives today.

What makes this book unique?

  1. The Scripture and narrative are intermixed in such a way that the story is always moving and held my attention. There is just enough commentary added to aide in understanding, but not too much.

  2. The author has done her research and brings in information from many different sources. I especially liked how she uses the wording from different Bible translations. The main text is taken from the NIV, but she weaves the alternate translations into her narrative, clearly marking each one.

  3. The text is humorous, insightful, authentic, and helps bridge the gap between cultures. I definetly have a better understanding of the book of Ruth after reading this book.

  4. There are study questions provided for two types of groups. One set of questions is for a single group discussion. There is also a more in-depth study guide for groups going through the book chapter by chapter.

I enjoyed this book very much and hope that Liz writes more like it in the future!

*Thank you WaterBrook Press for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
