The book of Ruth is a story of romance, redemption, and loyalty. The story begins with the character Naomi who has lost her husband and two sons, leaving her destitute in a foreign land. The suffering is overwhelming as she turns bitter and angry against God. Nevertheless, Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter in-law, forgoes the safety and provision of her own extended family and pledges her allegiance to Naomi. As they struggle to survive, Ruth is discovered by Boaz, a relative of Naomi, who falls in love with Ruth. Boaz acquires the right to become her husband and delivers Ruth and Naomi from their plight. The book concludes with a genealogy that demonstrates that King David, and eventually Jesus, descends from the foreigner Ruth.
The book of Ruth tells the story of God’s faithfulness to his people in a specific case, as a Moabite woman becomes part of his story of redemption.
