The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges: Ruth


Cambridge University Press 1918

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


"The ancient narratives of the book of Judges carry us back to a half-barbarous age of struggle and disorder, memorable chiefly for the deeds of Israel's heroes; the book of Ruth, although the scene is laid in the same age, gives us a very different picture," states Cooke. An incredibly brief but informative twenty-two pages make up this commentary on Ruth, where the author contrasts the scene of Ruth to that of Judges—Ruth gives a picture of a family and village life, rather than the larger scope Judges provides of the whole nation of Israel.

Key Features

Praise for the Print Edition

There are no better books in exposition of the different parts of Scripture than those contained in the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges. The series has long since established its claim to an honorable place in the front rank of first-rate commentaries; and the teacher or preacher who masters its volumes will be, like Apollos, mighty in the Scriptures.
