Reviews - What do customers think about Ruth: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching (Interpretation, a Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching)?

For a short overview, this is extremely well done.  Nov 11, 2009
We can't compare this little 90 page gem with weightier works. Still, this is a wonderful read. The author leaves behind much speculation and gives a well researched, easy to access, reading of Ruth. While she may have missed one important element in Chapter 3, namely that Ruth is asking Boaz to be willing to fulfill the spirit of the Law, not the letter of the Law by asking him to act as a Levir, not merely a Go'el...which then inspires Boaz, who then plays the same "spirit of the Law" card to dear old Mr. So and So. Though, the insights from this little volume are rich and plentiful. A quick read that will give you a solid understanding. Much to be commended!
