Editorial Reviews

The Book of Ruth, is a triumphant love story in the face of adversity.
This selfless journey of love and devotion is seen through the eyes of a young widow. Choosing to leave her homeland of Moab, she follows her mother-in-law Naomi to Israel after the death of her husband. Upon reaching Bethlehem, she meets and marries a man named Boz, who is of the Royal House of Judah. This chain of seemingly unrelated events sets the stage for the future kings of the nation of Israel, and the glorious coming of the Messiah.

A Biblical Cinderella story from the archives of the royal Jewish bloodline, this story reveals the redemption of their inheritance through the child Obed, who was the grandfather of King David.

Starring Dan Haggerty ( Grizzly Adams ), Lana Wood ( Diamonds are Forever ), Eleese Lester ( Friday Night Lights ), Carman of Carman World Ministries, and newcomer Sherri Morris as Ruth.

It is not to often that you find a movie based on a bible character to be quality and extremely well written, for The Book of Ruth it excels on both accounts. The story of Ruth will capture your heart like never before with a superb performance by Sherry Morris. It was great to see her character interact with Boaz played by Carman and share some amazing chemistry on screen. If you are a fan of the biblically account of Ruth or if you enjoy a classic story of romance and redemption, The Book Of Ruth won't disappoint.

There are several movies made around the story of Ruth in the Bible. This one is the most accurate and is well put together for the limited budget it was created from. You will thoroughly enjoy this movie!

The movie "Book of Ruth" is very good overall....and mostly follows the Biblical story line, though it's a B-rated type film (you know...acting is good by some, not all people involved, money is tight for the budget, etc...). We originally had added Book of Ruth to our Biblical collection, because it's close to the Biblical account and doesn't put so many inaccuracies into your head.

HOWEVER, the "Story of Ruth" film also sold is something we tried from library before deciding to buy and WOULDN'T BUY IT. Oy! It's purely made up, full of errors according to the Biblical book of Ruth. So buy this film here, NOT the other one!

HAVING SAID THIS...here's an update we came to decision on a while back:
The one exception to us recommending this film, is going to only strike a positive/helpful note with few people (we realize), but nevertheless....the problem we have with this film is that real live human beings with real life families (husbands, and/or wives, and/or children) are being intimate with other people outside of their family all for the sake of "it's just a job, it's acting." We personally don't believe that God will every approve body-close-holding and smooching, as "just a job so it's okay" when it comes to non-married people. You simply won't find that kind of behavior ever supported or condoned in the Bible. As i said, we realize this won't be a popular stance, in a Media-soaked culture, but nonetheless...it's the flat truth. So we cannot recommend you actually buy this film. There ARE films on the market, few though, that have actual actors who are husbands and wives being intimate on screen...

The only way I can understand the 4-star average review this movie had at the time I received it as a gift is by believing friends and family members of the actors left the reviews.

When one of the comments said it was low production quality I thought they meant like the other bible series movies are (because in comparison to Hollywood, they are lower and more cheesy), but this was VERY low production quality (sound levels going up and down, extended musical interludes that felt like they were there because no one could come up with dialogue etc), the acting in general was amateurish and stiff, and the casting and make-up in some cases was way off (Ruth's birth mother looked like she'd had botox in her lips and had on a full face of 21 century make-up, another actress had what sounded like a New York accent).

Again, I say all this not to make you NOT see this, but rather to go in with your expectations set. I went in expecting a LOT more and so was disappointed. I will likely watch it again now knowing what to expect and will probably enjoy it more.

Several reviewers said this was the most accurate movie of the story of Ruth, I agree that's probably true, but that's not really saying much given the other options. Frankly, although I almost always prefer a movie to a book, next time I'll read Unshaken: Ruth (The Lineage of Grace Series #3) - perhaps one day someone will make THAT into a movie :)

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Although the story of Ruth (and Boaz) has a flavor of a love story, it was not included in the Bible cannon for that purpose. 2 Tim. 3:16 tells us that "All scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching . . ." and what do we glean from the book of Ruth? It's not the lesson of a drunken, wealthy party-goer who sees a foreign woman and decides she's his next love interest. The entire story is a living example of how the "repurchaser" (Messiah - Jesus Christ) played by the real-life individual Boaz, would put away selfish interests and buy back the world of mankind from its hopeless situation that Adam had placed mankind in. The allegedly religious "technical advisor" must have been absent throughout the scripting and filming of this poorly done excuse for cinematography. To so completely miss the main point of the story of Ruth is like describing the Louvre Museum in Paris as a place that has a bunch of paintings and old stuff. What a sad disservice to the Creator, and a sad reflection on this movie's producers and "technical staff".

This film followed the Biblical story well but the acting and production quality were very low. I almost couldn't watch the whole thing. I don't want to be critical of a Christian film but I highly recommend renting this before you buy it.
