Gleanings from the Book of Ruth is not a commentary on the Book of Ruth in the traditional sense but, rather, a summary of a lifetime’s work studying this lovely story from the Word of God.
The work is presented as a variety of “gems”; hence it is titled “gleanings” rather than “a commentary”. It is a collection of jewels that will enrich the lives of those who love the Lord, rather than a systematic analysis of the book. This publication will appeal to those believers who enjoy daily manna from the Word – small portions at a time – and who like to pick up a book at any page and enjoy the thoughts just as they are.
It is the hope of the writer that the material, which is presented without embellishment, be available for others to develop and use to feed the people of God. These are the “bare bones” for others to “flesh out” according to their needs and exercise. To that end, most scripture quotations are referenced. Sunday School teachers, in particular, will find this material valuable.
