Overview
As the old adage goes, you have to ask the right questions before you can get the right answers. And that's exactly what the Not Your Average Bible Study series helps you do. Rather than spoon-feeding you with individual facts, this study of Ruth coaches you on how to think through the text as a whole. Tested and proven in Bible Study Magazine, it's perfect for group and individual studies alike.

Ruth was an outcast, yet God drew her from the outskirts of society. He incorporated her not only into the community of Israel but also into his plan of salvation. In Ruth, we find a story of love, loyalty, and compassion--both from people and from God. And we see how God works through ordinary people to achieve his great purposes.

Each section of the guide begins with a concise introduction, providing context for the biblical passage. Next, you'll consider questions designed to prompt your own in--depth study. You'll also find specific prayer suggestions, along with ideas for further research. Experience the joy of discovering biblical insights for yourself--then apply these lessons to your everyday life.

This is not your average Bible study!
