Summary: The book of Ruth is arguably one of the most cherished stories in the Bible. We marvel at this young Moabite widow and her sacrificial love towards her mother-in-law, Naomi. Countless wedding ceremonies echoed Ruth's timeless words, Whither thou goest, I will go. We rejoice at Ruth's marriage to her kinsman redeemer, Boaz. Then the divine narrative leaves the reader to ponder those areas where the Bible is silent. *Why, actually, did Ruth leave with her mother-in-law, Naomi, for Bethlehem, while more the other widowed daughter-in-law, Orpah, choose to remain in Moab? *What might have been the circumstances surrounding the death of Ruth's first husband, Mahlon? *Were Ruth and Orpah friends as well as sisters-in-law? *What kind of men were Naomi's two sons, Mahlon and Chilion? *Did Ruth's first husband, Mahlon, ever personally know her second husband, Boaz? *What would a kinsman redeemer look like in our contemporary culture? *How did Ruth's childhood as a pagan Moabite girl prepare her for life with Naomi, a God-Fearing Jew? Using his signature mixture of humor, drama, and imagination, author and storyteller Rod Mills retells the Book of Ruth as it might occur in the 21st century with his novel, Ruth Jones. Faithful to the biblical chronology of events, Ruth Jones leaves the reader with a greater appreciation for The Book of Ruth, and with a profound sense of admiration for that remarkable Moabitess revealed in Scripture. less
