"Faithful God is a book that touched me deeply and one I recommend without reservation to all Christians. It is a small book and one which is unlikely to be promoted or even to catch your eye. But do not let its small size and relative obscurity fool you. This is a wonderful book and one that I trust can and will bless you as it has blessed me. There is much wisdom in its pages. There is much to ponder, to reflect upon, and to prayerfully integrate into a life. It can be read in only a few hours but will bring benefit to any believer’s life. Read it and reap!"

The book of Ruth is in multum in parvo (much in little). It contains far more about God than its size would suggest; it records experiences of joy and sorrow; it tells a story of home life, romance and marriage, of unexpected conversion and radical consecration.
Here is a vital part of the biblical narrative of redemptive history, focusing like a microscope on part of the detailed preparation God made as he sovereignly directed history towards the coming of the Saviour Jesus Christ. This book helps us to understand Christ himself--and, indeed the whole Bible--more fully and clearly, and teaches us much about God's grace and providence.
The writer encourages us to "enjoy God and his Word." Here is a thoroughly enjoyable and heart-warming book, which includes as a helpful appendix a letter by John Newton on the guidance of God.
This study of the book of Ruth has its origins in a series of memorable addresses given at the English Conference of the Evangelical Movement of Wales in Aberystwyth in August 1996.
