Top Highlights

“Out of this maelstrom comes a shining story of courage, faithfulness and life lived the way it’s supposed to be. In English Bibles the Book of Ruth follows Judges, an order based on chronology that heightens the contrast between the tenor of the events of the two books and suggests that life can be normal in spite of the chaos of the times. For its part, the Hebrew Bible places Ruth after Proverbs, giving a tangible answer to the question, ‘A worthy woman (eshet hayil)—who can find?’ (Prov 31:10; cf. Ruth 3:11). In any case, the story of Ruth is a reminder that behind the craziness of the daily news, people who live under the blessings of God are able to organize their lives in ways that are meaningful and helpful for others.” (Page 46)

“‘In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in their own eyes’ (Judg 21:25” (Page 46)

“His intent was to ‘flee from the presence of the LORD’—as if that were geographically or even ontologically possible—but by his actions Jonah betrayed that his provincial understanding of God was no larger than that of prophets from other nations who operated under the assumption that every land or city-state was protected by a god who was effective only within its own borders (cf. 1 Kgs 20:23, 20:28).” (Page 89)

“The result: two teams in the field rather than one, a net gain for the early church. Silas (a short-form of the Latin name Sylvanius) was a leader in the Jerusalem church (Acts 15:22, 15:32) but also a Roman citizen (Acts 16:37). Like Paul, he was culturally bilingual and so an excellent fit for the task at hand.” (Page 242)

In this integration of biography, history, and geography, Paul Wright applies his considerable knowledge of the land to the life and times of people in both the Old and New Testaments. In his capable hands readers will see the characters of the Bible come to life in the context of the very real world in which they lived. Whether readers have been through the Bible 50 times or this is their first, the pictures, maps, and extremely readable text will lead them to fresh insight into this greatest of stories.

    The author gives an insider view of the geography which makes a difference. The book is an introductory overview of a familiar subject, but it is written so well (biblically sound and historically realistic) that I've read it all, to refresh what I already know and also to learn much new. Maps are limited to the essential info, which is good in this kind of book. The links to the dead sea scrolls or talmud do not always work, I look forward to an update. I hope the next edition will use the metric system :)
