Reviews - What do customers think about Who Are You, My Daughter??
This is not a really a commentary in the traditional sense. Jan 11, 2007
This book is good. My problem was that I thought it was going to be an indepth commentary on Ruth. Instead it is the book of Ruth with Davis illustrating the key words and concepts page by page. It also has some really nice pictures. I think it would be great for use in children's ministry.
Wonderful Translation and Commentary Jun 22, 2005
This book is a must read for anyone interested in the book of Ruth. Ellen Davis does a wonderful job of translating and commenting on the passages. She explains Hebrew words and lets you know when a passage is ambiguous. She will offer other possible ways to translate a passage and gives clear explanations. I love when she reflects on the use of the same Hebrew word or phrase in other places in Ruth or elsewhere in Scripture. It totally absorbed me, and I am looking forward to reading it again--I want to remember every gem. I have now put all her writings on my wish list, and I hope she will translate more books of Scripture!
