Book Introduction - Ruth

This lovely story should be read in connection with the first half of Judges, as it presents a picture of life in Israel at that time.

Typically, the book may be taken as a foreview of the church (Ruth), as the Gentile bride of Christ, the Bethlehemite who is able to redeem. Ruth also gives a normal Christian experience:

1. Ruth deciding (Ruth 1).

2. Ruth serving (Ruth 2).

3. Ruth resting (Ruth 3).

4. Ruth rewarded (Ruth 4).

The events recorded in Ruth cover a period of 10 years (Ussher).
