Book Review: I am Ruth

After reading "I am Ruth, A Story of Loss, Love & Redemption" by Brenda Duff, I believe this book will find a permanent place on my coffee table. 

Already after finishing it, I have picked it up several times to read and to enjoy Kenneth Berg's incredible photographic portrayal of this story.  As a matter of fact, it is almost like a movie in book form, yet more. 

The narrative portion of the book not only includes information about Ruth, Naomi, Boaz and their contemporaries, it also includes other biblical stories that have similarities in them, such as Joseph (Jesus' earthly father) leading his family to  Egypt to save their lives and Lot (Abraham's nephew) and his family fleeing the burning cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.

What I enjoyed most was being able to vicariously "live" the story through the stunning photographs that were taken in the Holy Land, close to where Ruth actually lived.

Ruth's life is a classic example of loyalty, courage, obedience, love, and God's provision.  This beautiful book is a fabulous representation.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided a free copy of this book by New Leaf Press in exchange for my honest opinion.
