Description

JOHN CURRID

The book of Ruth has been called an ancient ‘biblical Cinderella story’ in which Ruth finds her prince: a rags-to-riches fairy tale. It is a wonderful short story. Many people throughout the ages have been touched by the sweetness and kindness so evident in the episode. Yet, as Peter Barnes observes, though the author does not push too much Boaz as a type of Christ, there is much of Christ in the commentary. John Currid looks at key themes within the book: the cost of obedience, the sovereignty of God, faithful living and redemption. The background is laid out – in the time of the Judges – as a time of degeneracy in the history of Israel. The focus then moves to one family within Israel, their move to Moab, the sadnesses there, the return home and God’s wonderful working to turn bitterness into joy. The author uses his great knowledge of Hebrew to enhance the reader’s understanding of the book.
