In its tales of gore, rebellion, sexual escapades, and fleeting victory, Judges is one of the books of the Bible in which we most see our need for a Savior and in which God’s grace shines most brightly. Meanwhile, the book of Ruth beautifully reminds us that God has not forgotten his promises to Abraham. His plan of redemption is displayed in this book through the lives of hurting women who cling to his covenantal lovingkindness.
Following her mind-heart-hands model of application, Sarah Ivill's gospel-centered Bible study provides questions and commentary to accompany a careful, redemptive-historical reading of these books in eighteen weeks (thirteen for Judges and five for Ruth). Readers will be both helped and challenged, emerging from their study with both a mastery over the subject matter and new ways to live a gospel-focused life.
