The book of Ruth is full of dramatic life-lessons, all framed in an enduring love story, it speaks of not one, but three important loves: 1. The love of a widowed, disenfranchised daughter-in-law for her embittered mother-in-law. 2. The love of an older nobleman, the wealthiest landowner in his region, for a servant girl from an alien culture, desperately trying to scrape a living. 3.The love of God for his broken, bewildered and stumbling people. This story will enable the reader to understand these loves and examine how we can move from chaos to a restored humanity full of good things for every one of us. This book is particularly useful as a study guide for small groups.
