Nothing pleases me more than seeing Ruth’s name in lights—especially when I know it is the ezer-warrior version of Ruth (rather than the Cinderella version) who is getting the attention.


Ruth was in the spotlight again last week at Kensington Church in Troy, Michigan and will be now for several weeks as they engage a Bible study series on the book of Ruth. The backstory of how she...

Carolyn Custis James, The Gospel of Ruth: Loving God Enough to Break the Rules

“It doesn’t cause me to doubt God’s existence, but it does force me to admit there’s a lot about God I don’t understand.”
Carolyn Custis James, The Gospel of Ruth: Loving God Enough to Break the Rules

“I have to ask myself how I can possibly expect to know Jesus as he would want to be known if my life remains unscathed by trouble and grief.

How can I reflect his image if I never share in his sufferings? And how will any of us ever learn to treasure his hesed and grace if we never experience phases where these blessings seem absent?”
