Ruth - Loss, Love and Legacy: A Book Review
About The Book:
by is a women's Bible study of Ruth's journey of unbearable loss, redeeming love, and divine legacy. The second in the Living Room Series, this 6-week study delves into the virtuous character of Ruth, her unique relationship with her mother-in-law Naomi, and her blossoming love with Boaz. If you've ever felt devastated, struggled as a stranger, longed to be loved, or wept along the way, you'll find a loyal sister in Ruth. This study includes stories, recipes, a leader guide, interactive Web site extras, and free bonus videos.
About The Author:
Kelly Minter is an acclaimed author, speaker, songwriter, and worship leader. She enjoys speaking and singing at women's events across the country. She seeks God with commitment and an honest integrity that shines through in everything she does. Kelly lives in Nashville, Tennessee.
The Book of Ruth from the Bible is one of my favorite, and has been for many years. Each time an author writes a book about Ruth, I usually read it. When I had the opportunity to review a number of Kelly Minter's work, I immediately chose Ruth: Loss, Love and Legacy and I was not disappointed.
With strong references to scripture, humor, music and food, you will be brought into the world of Ruth and find out just how much her life teaches us as women after God's heart today. The life lessons are truly timeless.
Each session has five days of reading, which includes scripture study and personal reflection and application. Also, each session includes lyrics to the accompanying CD of the same title as the study and the CD is a nice combination of soft pop with truly inspiring and worship filled lyrics. Finally each session has delightful sounding recipes, for example Curry Chicken with Chickpea and Dried Fruit, which I have not had a chance to try out but definitely will be. Each recipe uses ingredients that can be found very easily in your pantry or local grocery store. Perfect for having a little meal before your small group study of Ruth! Actually that is how Kelly Minter intended this Living Room Series to be done, over a meal! I love it!
I highly recommend that this study, as well as all of Kelly Minter's work, be used in Women's Ministry's around the world! They are so easy to follow and use not only for group study but for individual as well.
I give this Bible Study a huge thumbs up!
