Going Deeper



Yesterday in the sermon, I mentioned the book that I was reading as I worked my way through Ruth.  The book, "The Gospel of Ruth: Loving God Enough to Break the Rules" by Carolyn Custis James (Zondervan, 2008).  The author is the wife of my former Church History professor at Reformed Theological Seminary - Orlando, Dr. Frank James.  I found her treatment of Ruth to be insightful and well written.  The best part of the book is that I can recommend it to everyone.  Most of the books on my shelf would probably go over like a ton of bricks.  Of interest to only those who enjoy reading academic theological works.  But, not this book!  I am indebted to her for a better understanding of Ruth.  And, I must say, I was hesistant to even preach from Ruth because I wasn't sure how I would ever deal with the spicy exchange on the floor of the threshing room between Ruth and Boaz.  But, I was comfortable and satsified with the way she unpacked the event.  Check out this book, if you want to go deeper.
