Paulus Cassel’s The Book of Ruth is a comprehensive commentary that illustrates the significance and beauty of this short book of the Old Testament. This volume focuses on a chunk of text at a time, analyzing the textual and grammatical, exegetical and doctrinal, and homiletical and practical elements of each passage.

This volume is essential for students, scholars, pastors, historians, teachers of the Bible, and anyone else studying the book of Ruth. With Logos Bible Software, the volume is completely searchable—Scripture passages appear on mouse-over and link to the Hebrew texts and English translations in your library. This accessibility makes these texts more powerful and easier to access than ever before.
