Summary

The Zondervan Biblical and Theological Lectures series provides a unique audio learning experience. Unlike a traditional audiobook's direct narration of a book's text, Ruth: Audio Lectures includes high quality live-recordings of college-level lectures that cover the important points from each subject as well as relevant material from other sources.

Ruth: Audio Lectures brings to light the universal scope of God’s sovereignty and mercy. With careful analysis and interpretation of the Hebrew text, professor and scholar Daniel Block traces the flow of argument in the book of Ruth, showing that how a biblical author says something is just as important as what they say.

Ruth is widely recognized as a superlative literary achievement of ancient Israel. With its sensitive portrayal of women in crisis, its admiration for a righteous man, and its profound theology of providence, it offers learners of every age a window into life in the ancient Near East, inspiration for good and godly living, and reason to wonder at the common roots of Israel’s royal and messianic hope.

Bridging the historical and theological gap, Ruth: Audio Lectures explains how David, the most important character in the Hebrew Bible, could emerge from the spiritual and ethical morass of the premonarchic period and accounts for the Moabite blood in this king's veins. Each lecture surveys the main idea of a passage, its literary context, an explanation of the text, and its canonical and practical significance for us today.
