Item Description...
Is God an exclusivist? Does He show Himself to a few special people, or is He interested in anyone who tries to find Him?

Ruth was born outside "the people of God," yet she pressed in to become one of His followers. Despite early tragedy, she gained God's acceptance and received unusual recognition. Among her descendants are King David and Israel's Messiah.

Ruth: How an Outsider Gained God's Favor, expresses the reward that comes from following God, no matter what the cost. No longer worry about being an "outsider" as you feel acceptance as a child of God. Trace the poignant story of Ruth's life and gain practical spiritual values that form the foundation of your relationship with the Lord.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The reach for spiritual and ethical conclusions is overextended  Jun 12, 2006
This book is more a statement of the social structures of the nation of Israel in the time of Ruth than it is a statement of ethics and spirituality. Ruth was a Moabite, outside the tribes of Israel. She was the wife of a son of Elimilech and Naomi, two members of the tribe of Israel who left in a time of famine. Ruth and Naomi's husbands both die, leaving them destitute widows. They then travel back to Israel, where they work as subsistence laborers picking up the gleanings of grain from the fields of Boaz.
Ruth works hard for Boaz, who is a decent man. He gives explicit instructions to his male workers that they are to leave Ruth alone. After Boaz and Ruth talk together at lunch several times, Ruth follows the instructions of her mother-in-law. Bathed and perfumed, Ruth goes to where Boaz is sleeping. She is allowed under his blankets, meaning that she is now under his protection as a wife. However, there are tribal laws that must be followed, so Boaz goes before the tribal elders to seek approval. That approval is granted and Boaz and Ruth are married and beget King David, the slayer of Goliath and the greatest King of Israel.
While Brewer finds spiritual aspects to this story, it is easy to see it another way. That of a scheming pair of women who do whatever is necessary to gain the favor of a wealthy man. Brewer "sees" the machinations of God in all that is happening, when in fact they all are just people just trying to live their lives. The simple mention of the Moabites and the fact that Ruth and Elimilech's family were so easily accepted back into the tribe of Israel indicate that the Moabites were not considers serious outsiders.
This is a tale of the life of the mother of David and is of historical and anthropological interest. However, the author really reaches in his attempts to find the ethical and spiritual points that he tries to make. So far that he is overextended and they fall flat.
