Episode 34: Rethinking the Book of Ruth w/ Carolyn Custis James

The book of Ruth is often miscast as the Bible’s version of a “Christian romance story,” which significantly reduces its meaning and power. Carolyn Custis James helps us see Ruth through the appropriate historical and cultural lenses, and we explore the ways in which Ruth and Naomi’s story is one full of bravery, sacrifice, creativity, and hesed.
