Reading Plan


Plan Summary

The book of Ruth is not an account of prophets or mighty kings, judges or patriarchs. It’s a record of ordinary people who wrestle with God’s character as they seek to orient their lives around God, His commands, and reflecting His unfailing love and loyalty to those around them. More than a grand fairytale or a model love story, Ruth’s story demonstrates how God brings meaning to the most universal and seemingly commonplace aspects of life—family, loss, provision, work, financial hardship, and community. As we read this seemingly simple story, we'll discover how these ordinary lives are part of a much bigger story. Join us in this two-week reading plan as we look at the life and legacy of Ruth to remind us that we too are brought near to God in His story of redemption.
