The biblical Book of Ruth is a story set in the violent times of the Judges. Yet it features such amazing themes as risk and kindness, God s love and human action, and the saving role of substitutes. This book reads the narrative of Ruth within its original background, and delights in the literary art of the story. But Dr Peter Lau also draws out these bigger themes, setting them within the broader context of the whole Bible in a simple, effective way anyone can understand. As he demonstrates, the only way for Christians to interpret and apply an Old Testament narrative is ultimately through the lens of Jesus Christ.

Review:

"Peter has produced a fine book of four expositions on Ruth. You will find yourself rereading them and referring back to the Bible text as he makes insightful comments about things you may not have noticed there before. These sermons communicate effectively but do not sacrifice depth of insight. This is a book which is fresh, engaging and spiritually invigorating." --David Cook - Former Principal, Sydney Missionary and Bible College
