: Enter into the story of Ruth like never before
Ruth was a vulnerable, widowed woman starting over in a foreign land. Naomi was returning to community. But Ruth, she was setting herself up to be the odd one out her whole life. What gave her the strength to do it? Could it be that she sensed all along that her journey away from Moab was a journey toward home?
The story of Ruth is a remarkable tale of bravery, calling, and God's provision, and it will come to life in new ways as you dig deep in this 6-week study. Tessa Afshar, author of In the Field of Grace and the award-winning Pearl in the Sand, teaches you how to study the text, discern the meaning, pray through it, and live it out. She'll show you how to draw on the same strength and courage that Ruth did and accept God's invitation to new beginnings in your own life.
