The Book of Ruth: A Popular Exposition


Religious Tract Society n.d.

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


This volume, though simple and straightforward, is a concise study on the person and book of Ruth. In it, Samuel Cox provides a thorough analysis of the various contexts surrounding Ruth—historical, political, and social—as well as the book’s authorship and spiritual significance. The Book of Ruth also contains two appendixes on the person of Christ: as Menuchah (Resting Place) of the world, and as Goel (Redeemer) of men.

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. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “Moab” or “Ruth 1:16.”

Praise for the Print Edition

This is a most admirable little treatise, full of thought and the results of research, communicated in the most pleasant and attractive guise. Mr. Cox’s gifts in the way of exposition are very marked. Few men have a greater power of giving a complete and distinctive view, unembarrassed by minor references. In his treatment of the Book of Ruth no point of interest is missed . . . There is not a dull sentence in it.
