The Gospel According to Ruth by Kevin Foster

Foster had a personal revival in the fall of 2012. A few months later he was reading the Old Testament book of Ruth. God planted within him a fresh look at the book. Over the next year he gleaned spiritual insights from the book and recorded them here.

I am impressed with the lessons Foster has shared with us. I have read through the book of Ruth before and never realized there were so many lessons contained within it. There are 121 reading in this book, each one a good spiritual lesson from a part of Ruth's story.

Foster has done a good job of using the story of Ruth as an example of the message of the gospel. His devotions are generally based on a particular verse or two on the biblical story. On occasion Foster with add lessons related to the topic but not based on a particular verse.

Foster's book is a good example of how much spiritual truth is contained within the Bible, even when the passage is a narrative one.

You can read excerpts, find out more about the book and watch interviews with the author at
