A Book I can Highly Recommend



by Francine Rivers

Unshaken,Lineage of Grace Series #3

This well-known author is writing a series of 5 books showing the grace of God in the lives of five very unlikely women from the Bible who are in the lineage and ancestry of Jesus. The first two in the series were Tamar, and Rahab. This novella is about Ruth.

Now, I thought I knew that story very well, but Rivers has been able to make Ruth come alive and still remain very true to the Bible version of the events. The details she fleshes into the story reveal the strong faith and loyalty that Ruth had in God, even when her beloved mother-in-law, Naomi, dispaired and had trouble believing God would ever bless her again.

There is also consideration given for the cultural differences and adjustments that she had to make, but it is her strong faith, and courage to do what she could see was right that fascinated me in this reading.

Whether the reader is new to this Bible story or not, there is a fine Bible study in the back of the book which guides the reader to make personal applications. An excellent idea. It could even be used in a small group.
