By Katharine Doob Sakenfeld
"The narrative of the ebook of Ruth is a drama of standard human existence, however the drama unfolds opposed to a heritage of the windfall and reasons of God. Katharine Doob Sakenfeld has written a remark that makes very transparent why the ebook of Ruth has such nice significance as literature and as scripture. The remark provides evenhanded therapy of either the human and divine dimensions of the textual content; Sakenfeld's interpretation is sociological in addition to theological. She assesses all of the major questions on the beginning and objective of the e-book, and asserts that the organizing middle of a formal analyzing has to be present in the narrative itself instead of in tentative solutions to old questions."--BOOK JACKET.
