Summer in the Scriptures: A Slow 7-Week Study Through the Book of Ruth

When I thought about what book I’d like to study through slowly this summer, the book of Ruth was at the top of my list. 2024 has already been one of the toughest years of my life. My family and I have walked through a lot of uncertainty and big decisions. God has been faithful and gracious. He has been faithful to always be right with us. To make his presence known daily in our lives. And he’s been gracious and generous with patience, provision, and gentleness.

Maybe you’re also walking through a hard season? Maybe you’ve wrestled with questions like “where are you God?” or “why does it have to be like this?” You’re not alone. Even when our faith is solid we can be like the man who told Jesus, “Lord I believe; help my unbelief!” (Mark 9:23-25).

I have a small plaque in my office with a quote from C.S. Lewis that I often find myself returning to: “life with God is not immunity from difficulties, but peace within difficulties.”

I’ve you’ve walked through uncertain seasons, and I’m sure you have, I think you’re going to enjoy and be blessed by studying the book of Ruth in the Old Testament. The story is hard and full of difficult moments. But the message is comforting and reminds me that even in the most difficult of seasons, God is with me.

In this study, we’ll take 7-weeks to study slowly and deep dive into the story of Ruth. We’ll look at the picture of Jesus we see in Boaz as the Kinsman Redeemer, the significance of the biblical Hebrew and more. I’ll share with you my study process and help you to begin to form or mature your own.

The study is free and you can sign up today here. To learn more about what’s included visit the registration page.

"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits."

Matthew 7:15-20 ESV
