A Sweet and Bitter Providence: Sex, Race and the Sovereignty of God (by John Piper)
Sex. Race. Risk. God.
Ruth and Boaz were risk-takers - a younger, immigrant, peasant widow and a middle-aged, Jewish landowner, walking along the precipice of social exclusion with absolute integrity. And what an unexpected outcome - affecting all generations to follow.
Their story of sexual intrigue and racial alliance plays out uncannily under the invisible hand of God. And in their hazardous acts of faithfulness, the reward of Providence was unimagined - they would bring forth a line leading to the King of kings.
