From the Back Cover

Through intriguing stories of biblical women, the Women of the Bible study series helps you see how God wants to work in your life. Questions and activities are designed to encourage personal application, understanding, and prayer, and to foster interaction within your study group. Ruth left her own people out of loyalty to Naomi. The story of their relationship and how God rewarded Ruth for her faithfulness helps us reflect on God's provision and guidance. This study illustrates how we can trust the Lord through faith and action in difficult times. Each chapter includes eight sections: - Opening Narrative - Discussing the Story - Sharing Your Story - After Hours - Setting the Stage - Behind the Scenes - Prayer Meetings - Words to Remember The leader's guide that's included makes it easy to facilitate weekly Bible studies that will nurture your knowledge of Scripture and your sense of God's presence in your life.

The Book of Ruth has always been a book that I didn't always quite get, but I loved the romance of it. I wanted to do a study on it, and this was one of the few books on Ruth I could find. I'd done a study of Esther by the same author, so I knew it would be good.
It did explain some things to me that I'd never understood before (like the significance of Ruth covering herself at Boaz's feet), and helped me see things from Ruth's perspective. The author goes into the background of the culture of that time, so we understand where the people are coming from.
Overall, I'd say this is an excellent book for a women's home group. More than just romance, this study shows how God provides for us in the most dire circumstances.
