Bethlehem Road: A Guide to Ruth targets those wanting to learn more about the Biblical book of Ruth and how it relates to us today. It starts out with a shattering question: “What do you do when your dreams are shattered?” Thie book uses the English Standard Version of the Bible, the HCS, NASU, NCV, NIV, and NLT are also referenced. There were times when I was reading it that I lost interest and had to re-read some parts of it to get the writers explanation. This was a adaptation or the writers versions of this book. Just keep that in mind when reading this. It reaches out to scholars and someone into biblical novels. ( )

"Sometimes blaming God for our problems only blinds us to his providence."

We’re often told that life is a journey, one with many forks in the road. But no matter what path we choose, somewhere along the way every road becomes broken. The smooth pavement eventually gives way to a twisted path of bad decisions and broken plans—easy street becomes a boulevard of broken dreams.

Out of the immense moral darkness of the Judges period comes a story of romance, redemption, and hope. The tale of Ruth has inspired countless generations. But Ruth isn’t the star in this romantic drama; center stage belongs to God and his providence. Naomi and Ruth traveled the Bethlehem Road—one of famine, abandonment, grief, and loss—unaware that the Lord had gone before them to redeem their heartache.

If you’ve been living with a broken heart—if bitterness and disappointment have been your travel companions on life’s road, then Ruth’s story will inspire and strengthen you for the journey ahead. More than that, it will bring you to your knees in worship of your Redeemer and King.
