A suffering nation, reeling from famine, judgment, and war, Israel was a dark and unfriendly home for most, particularly for a woman. Even more so for a widowed woman. Ruth’s story begins in desolation—but as in every story whose Author is God, that desolation is not without a glimmer of hope. As you watch that glimmer of hope bloom into a dazzling display of grace, you’ll understand why the book of Ruth is called, by some, the greatest love story of all time. But this love story is much less about romance and more about restoration. It’s a story of how God can turn tragedy into joy, no matter how desperate circumstances may seem.
In this six-week study, explore the subject of restoration, walking verse by verse through the book of Ruth. With Scripture memory, daily study, and group discussion questions, this resource is ideal for both individual and group study.
