From Famine to Fullness: The Gospel According to Ruth (Gospel According to the Old Testament)
Ulrich, Dean R.
“One of the most urgent needs of the church is to grasp how the many parts of the Bible fit together to make one story-line’ that culminates in Jesus Christ. This series of books goes a long way toward meeting that need. Written at a thoughtful but popular level, it deserves wide circulation.”See All

“This lively book with rich gospel content is written in a lucid style that communicates easily to pastors and laity alike. It explains how the story of Ruth is part and parcel of the redemptive history that extends from Genesis to Revelation: the good news that God has provided our Kinsman-Redeemer, Jesus Christ, who grants us the forgiveness of sins and the inheritance of resurrection to everlasting life. God worked through ordinary OT believers in distressing situations to bring about redemption for a Moabite who became an ancestress of Christ. Our times of suffering too are opportunities for God to strengthen our faith and work through us to bring salvation to others.”See All

Whether they are thrilled by the love story of Ruth and Boaz or encouraged by a happy ending for Naomi, many people are drawn to the book of Ruth. But though the story is indeed charming, Ruth is included in Scripture for more than our entertainment. Ruth's message is theological, rooted in God's oversight of the movement of redemptive history that climaxes in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
