Publisher's Summary

From Genesis through Judges we have a straight, linear narrative; in Ruth we have a recapitulation, a backward glance into the main story. When we look over our shoulders at the linear path we have followed, we see only a charred, smoking and bloody landscape. Ruth is a diamond lying in the muck and mire of Judges, flashing in the sunlight. "Back in the days when the Judges ruled"... there was Ruth-the greatest love story in the Bible, a story of redemption.

Audible Editor Reviews

Dr. Bill Creasy of Logos Bible Study uses a literary, historical approach to examine and enliven the bible for modern listeners. Dr. Creasy draws on his studies, travels, and personal anecdotes to depict a vivid picture of the works of scripture. Somewhere between a sermon and a college lecture, he delivers these audiobooks with authority but a pleasantly friendly voice and a touch of fun, using contemporary references.
Dr. Creasy describes The Book of Judges as setting a "charred bloody landscape" that seems bleak, making the following book, The Book of Ruth, a diamond by contrast. He examines the powerful story of Ruth, a non-Jew who comes to Judaism; a glimmer of order amongst chaos.

Excellent

Dr. Bill said this is his favourite book in the entire bible. I have to say once I finished this audio I have listened over and over again. It's now my favourite too. Along with Dr. Bill Creasy bring my absolute favourite of all the bible study teachers there are on this planet. I am making my way through all his lectures and have learned so much. Even my 8 year old loves to listen to Dr. Bill. If you want to learn the bible and understand it and love it, then the logos bible studies I highly recommend.
