Discovering Christ in Ruth


Don Fortner 2007

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Everyone likes a love story with a happy ending. The story of Ruth and Boaz has special appeal to believers, because we see in it an outline of our own spiritual history and of our relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, our kinsman redeemer, of whom Boaz was a type. The revealed theme is redemption and grace. Boaz was Ruth’s close relative, the one who had the right to redeem. As such, he portrays our great, incarnate God and Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who has willingly fulfilled the part of the redeeming relative for us. As we contemplate his great love for us, which far exceeds the love of any on this earth, we are stimulated to deeper love and devotion to him and his service.

Praise for the Print Edition

This book is a challenge to all in our generation who live by their feelings and not by faith in Christ. You cannot read it and remain the same. It is provocative and demands a response. This is strong medicine, but all who taste it will be made whole!
