5 Key Features of Rose Publishing's Ruth ebook

•Gives a Great Summary of the Book of Ruth This 14-page ebook explains the story of Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz in an easy-to-understand way. It separates this epic love story into "scenes," covering each portion of the story's significance.

•Includes the Historical Background of the Book of Ruth Discover how politics, economics, and geography affected these Bible people. Why did Naomi's husband move to Moab in the first place? Why didn't the Israelites get along with the Moabites? And more.

•Explains the Significance of the Cultural Customs Mentioned within the Book of Ruth. The book of Ruth is packed with cultural traditions that enrich the meaning of the story. This Ruth Bible study explains these important cultural practices and shows their significance. For example—

• Naomi had a social status lower than a slave once her husband and sons died.
• Ruth took home more than 10 times the average salary of harvesters when she worked in Boaz's field.
• When Ruth asked Boaz to "spread the corner of [his] garment" over her, she is asking him to make a symbolic gesture for marriage. (Plus, you will find out how this particular act relates to our covenant in Christ.)

•Gives the Meaning of Key Names and Phrases Find out the Hebrew meaning of key names, words, and phrases, and how they relate to the bigger story of God's faithfulness. For example—

• Naomi [which means "pleasant"] changes her name to "Mara" [which means bitter.]
• Both Boaz and Ruth are praised for showing "Hesed," a type of love that suggests taking loyalty, commitment, and compassion a step beyond what is simply required.

•Emphasizes God's Continual Faithfulness In the story of Ruth we encounter loss, suffering, disappointment, uncertainty and bitterness. But we also find good news; we find love, commitment, perseverance, hope, and God's powerful guidance in the midst of trials. Even though Ruth wasn't an Israelite, she was called by God to something much greater than anyone expected: She is one of only five women listed as an ancestor of Jesus Christ. Her story is a reminder to us all of God's unfailing love and faithfulness.

This Ruth Bible study tackles issues we all face today, making it perfect for a women's Bible study group, for anyone who wants to learn more about the women of the Old Testament, or for anyone needing a fresh reminder of God's enduring love and guidance.
