really liked it

John Piper is, in my opinion, one of the great theological thinkers of our time. I often come away from his books feeling that I only scratched the surface of what he was writing about. However, Piper always challenges me to think ever deeper and longer about the gloriousness and graciousness of the God I serve. This little book on Ruth is no exception. One of the best quotes from the book occurs near the end: "God wants us to know that when we follow him, our lives always mean more than we think they do. Naomi had no idea in the land of Moab that God was making her the ancestor of the Messiah. For the Christian there is always a connection between the ordinary events of life and the stupendous work of God in history."
