Many people think of the book of Ruth as one of the most beautiful short stories ever written. We feel inspired by the way two destitute widows cope with their lot in life, and we are delighted to see that the story ends well for them. But few of us are aware that the reason this book is included in our Bible is much loftier and more profound than this!
