Item description for Ruth and Esther: God Behind the Seen (Focus on the Bible) by A. Boyd Luter, Barry C. Davis & Luter Boyd...
Overview Tragedy and triumph - the books of Ruth and Esther tell the stories of two women who achieve success against all odds. One woman overcomes a personal tragedy, the other a nationwide crisis. The roads they take to succeed, however, are quite different. This fascinating study provides a practical commentary on the lives of two women as it shows readers the providential care of the unseen God for his people - not only in past history, but in our day as well. Even seemingly out-of-control crises are under his watchful care. Teachers of Bible study groups as well as pastors will find this volume a rich source of insight into the text and a real inspiration for living.
Publishers Description John Charles Ryle 1816 1900 was the first Bishop of Liverpool England. After a dazzling sporting career at school and university poised on the verge of national recognition he gave it all up to become a minister in the Church of England.However his leadership abilities on the field of play stood out and prepared him for the difficult task of being an evangelical leader of a mixed diocese in the most sectarian of English cities. Throughout his period in office Ryle was respected by his colleagues to the extent that even one of his most strident opponents broke down and wept at the news of his death. He was able to master the difficult task of being firm in his beliefs and loving in his application of them. His gracious spirit is an example to us today. This is probably why many of Ryle's writings have been continuously in print for over 100 years. Here Ryle explains that divisive often derided and misapplied by advertising term 'born again'. He explains what being 'born again' means why it is necessary and how you can tell whether you are. Much of the value of this publication though lies in what Ryle writes next. In his gracious yet firm way Ryle devotes the majority of the book to explaining how the objections people have had to the doctrine should be handled and overcome with gentle persuasion.It is a supreme example of the art of persuasion.
