Quick Overview

Terri Fivash talks about Ruth and Boaz on Hope Channel's Between the Lines:

"If you were the last man in Bethlehem, I would never give Naomi to you! Do you think I would stain her with your tainted blood? You are nothing but a dirty Canaanite, son of a Jericho whore. How dare you consider my daughter? Get out of this house!"

And so Boaz lost Naomi, the most beautiful bride in Bethlehem, to Elimelech. Instead, Yahweh God gave him Mena–then took her back. And now their son, Yatom, joy of his heart, was dying. Why were the anchors of his life swept away? Why would God punish him so? Did Yahweh, too, like jealous Tobeh, detest the foreign blood flowing in his veins?

With a cast of 89 characters and a plot that tugs at the heart, Terry Fivash, author of Joseph, breathes new life into the story of Ruth–singer of songs, faithful friend, and daughter of royalty. But with foreign blood, who would have her?

This is a story of Yahweh's harvest, the harvest of life. As the sun-golden grain ripens only through the rain, so He turns tragedy into blessing, and empties only to fill full. Our times are in His hand.

But back to the beginning. Young Boaz, at play in the fields of Bethlehem, little knew he was a special seedling in Yahweh’s garden. All he knew was that the raiders were coming . . .

Perfect Love Story

The story was beautifully weaved. It was masterfully written. I could not wait to read page after page. I was thoroughly engrossed.

Fivash strikes literary gold again with Ruth and Boaz

Fivash's second book, Ruth & Boaz, is just as gripping as her first. And for those of you who've read Joseph, you'll understand when I say Ruth too, will be impossible to put down until the very end. Where Joseph was a story of one man's struggle to find himself and God, Ruth, as is obvious from the title, is centered around the love story between Ruth and Boaz and is quite a different book entirely. But Fivash's quick wit and charm are still aptly present throughout and God's grace and wisdom in the lives of His followers is wonderfully evident without being preachy. The hours spent by Fivash meticulously researching to get the historical details correct is also obvious. The only problem with Ruth & Boaz is that it will leave you even more impatient for Fivash's next book!

Excellent

Tells the story of Ruth and Boaz in an easy to read way. The insights on the culture of the time are wonderful. I will read this book again.
