There are many times in the lives of God’s people when we are tempted to ask if he is still watching, if he cares and if he is powerful to act.

The Lord Redeems - The Book of Ruth

Set in the days of the Judges, the book of Ruth is one of the most beautiful short stories ever written. Unlike the book of Judges, with its stories of great charismatic leaders and their extraordinary deeds, Ruth gives us another side to life in those days where simple faith in God’s providence is commended and where God works with his invisible hands in bringing the ma...
