Room S210 - 10 wks
Set in one of the most corrupt eras of Israelite history, Ruth is a story about three compelling characters. Naomi is an elderly widow who has lost everything and returns to her homeland empty and bitter hoping simply to survive. Ruth is Naomi's young daughter-in-law, also a widow, and a foreigner, who at great personal cost refuses to let Naomi face the future alone. Boaz is the local patriarch—a man of wealth and influence who is given the opportunity to do the right thing, even though the right thing might not be the obvious thing.
Participants in this study will be challenged as they see themselves in these characters and find themselves faced with many of the same questions and challenges. Cost of the book is $17.
