Everybody loves a good love story. Most people don’t think of the Bible when thinking of a great love story, the old testament book of Ruth is just that. A great love story.
You have Ruth, a young, poor, widowed Moabite girl. She meets Boaz, a rich, affluent Jewish boy. Throw in an old, bitter mother-in-law named Naomi. Mix in some bad decisions, a disaster, and death along with a surprise ending, a baby, and a royal link to Jesus Christ and you have the makings of a great love story.
