THE BOOK OF RUTH
The Journey Home : : Granting Grace to the Stranger
Having lost everything: husband, country, friends, family, and well-being, Ruth finds herself clinging to a new family, in a foreign country, wondering how she will fare. Will she wither in this new place, be ostracized and ridiculed as a foreigner, and will she die in poverty and obscurity? Ruth's story is one of redemption, inclusion, and adoption into a new family, a new country, and a new heritage. It is a story of hope and grace.
