The Book of Ruth (Cover-to-Cover Series)

While the identity of the author of Ruth is uncertain, the skill of the author of Ruth is beyond dispute. This little biblical book “is one of the most delightful literary compositions of the ancient world” (Block, Judges, Ruth, 603). Interesting dialogue, characterization, suspense, wordplay, and ambiguity abound in this four-chapter section of holy Writ that details a redemptive love story involving self-sacrificial heroism that foreshadows the ultimate and final self-sacrificial redemptive love story and our ultimate Hero, Jesus Christ.

To help us unpack all that is the book of Ruth, we welcome John Oglesby back to the podcast. John is a husband, father, theologian and writer. He currently serves as Executive Vice President and Associate Professor of Transformative Learning and Leadership at Colorado Biblical University a subsidiary of AgathonEDU Educational Group.
