:In this commentary James McKeown approaches the book of Ruth as part of the canon of Scripture, studying not only the content of the book but also its relationship to other biblical books. McKeown shows in particular how Ruth overflows with allusions to Genesis. The themes of "blessing," "seed," and "land" are common to both books, and studying Genesis and Ruth together provides profound insights.
In addition to his exegetical commentary on the text of Ruth, McKeown provides useful background material on how the book has previously been interpreted, and he focuses on Ruth's theology and its application. His discussion also touches on such related topics as universalism, feminist studies, and the missiological significance of the book of Ruth.
McKeown's insightful commentary will enable students, pastors, and laypeople to better understand the ancient book of Ruth so that they can better apply its message and wisdom today.
