I loved, loved, loved this book by Liz Curtis Higgs! She is a great storyteller anyway, but then add that fact to the story of Naomi, Ruth and Boaz… I read the online version of this book, and I was just blown away.
We have read the book of Ruth, but for Higgs to add comments, some humorous, and details about what might have, and maybe was happening around the story was just fascinating. It was thought-provoking, interesting, and this book caused the story to come alive, more so than any other review and/or commentary on the book of Ruth that I’ve seen. Sometimes I think we read about these people in the Bible, and we forget they are people, just like us.
I couldn’t even stop reading once I started, and I finished it in one evening. It would be great for a Bible study or book club, as it provides many stimulating aspects of the story. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is interested in this story of love and redemption in the Old Testament book of Ruth.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
