The 52 Greatest Stories of the Bible (Story #9): A Pagan Widow Gets It Right (Ruth)

The book of Ruth tells the story of a pagan widow who followed her mother-in-law back to her homeland and, through God’s providential plan, wound up in the bloodline of the Messiah. Ruth did the right thing even when the cards were stacked against her. Her story isn’t flashy, but it provides a welcome contrast to the pessimistic view of humanity presented in the book of Judges.
