A wonderful book which I just read ! I am saving it as a birthday gift for my sister. It should have been made into a video! I enjoyed the trailer!! Go the web site for a preview of the book, http://www.nlpg.com/i-am-ruth-a-story-of-loss-love-redemption
The pictures in this book are so beautiful. I was drawn into this story!! This was made in Israel so you get a real look into her world! All girls enjoy this story so you will too!
This would make a perfect coffee table book! You will get lost in a norther world full of sorrow, troubles and joys. See God's redeeming hand in a life of Ruth! The front of the book caught my attention!he book of Ruth doesn’t exactly begin as a happy story. Within the first three verses, we learn that during the time of the Judges of Israel, the nation experienced a famine; Elimelech moved his wife Naomi and their two sons, Chilion and Mahlon, to Moab; and then Elimelech passes away, leaving Naomi to raise their sons alone.
Eventually, Mahlon and Chilion marry two Moabite women, Ruth and Orpah. 10 years later, Mahlon and Chilion pass away, leaving the three women completely alone.Could you renounce everything and everyone you’ve known for a single person? Would you give up everything for a land, people, culture and God that you barely knew? That’s what Ruth did.
Ruth and Naomi make it to Bethlehem just in time for the barley harvest. They have nothing and no real idea how they will provide for themselves. Ruth is an enterprising and hardworking young woman, though, so she asks Naomi if it’s okay for her to find a field and follow the harvesters so she can gather the barley the harvesters miss. Through God’s planning, the field Ruth chooses happens to belong to Naomi’s relative, Boaz.
