"A Sweet & Bitter Providence"

I love to read the story of Ruth. For one thing, I can read the entire book rather easily in one sitting. More than that, the grace of God flows off the pages. We read of God blessing Naomi, Ruth, and Boaz. We also read of the blessing of Jesus Christ, who comes through David, a descendant of Ruth.

John Piper has written a new book that focuses on the life of Ruth. The book is entitled A Sweet & Bitter Providence. I highly recommend it.

If you have read this blog for any length of time, you know that I enjoy reading Dr. Piper. I have about 35 of his books on my shelf. A Sweet & Bitter Providence is one of my 5 favorite Piper books - it's that good.
