The Book of Ruth: A Severe Mercy
The Book of Ruth is a story that shows how “God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform.” It’s a story for people who wonder where God is when one tragedy after another attacks their faith. It’s a story for those who wonder whether a life of integrity in tough times is worth it at all. It’s a story for those who wonder if anything great could ever come of their ordinary lives of faith.
The Book of Ruth is given to the Church to encourage the people of God. It reminds us that His love and grace are available to us even in our darkest times and most difficult times.
