Ruth: A Parable of the Kingdom

A Love Story That Changed the World

88 pages

From famine to harvest, from death to birth, from chaos to kingdom – the story of Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz had a profound effect on their culture. Set in the time when there was "no king in Israel," the love story of Ruth and Boaz led down the generations to King David and ultimately to the central theme of the Bible: the coming of the kingdom of God.

In Ruth: A Parable of the Kingdom, Peter Lyne draws on his own lifetime of experience to show how the timeless principles at work in the story of Ruth have just as much power to change our world today.

Includes questions at the end of each chapter to provoke thought and discussion about what these principles might look like in readers' own lives. Suitable for use in house groups or for personal Bible study.
