Judges

The book of Judges gives the history of people who are in the promised land but far from God. It has a revolving cycle of rebellion leading to ruin which God resolves but sending a rescuer judge but then the resulting rest is soon broken again by further rebellion. The book is a lesson in what happens when we stop looking to God and rely on other things in place of God, but also a lesson in God’s continued faithfulness to his promise.

Ruth

Ruth is set in the early days of the Israelites living in Canaan before they were ruled by kings. In a context when so many rejected God, Ruth is a ray of light. It’s the story of an outsider who trusts God and is welcomed into the community of grace. It shows how our lives are transformed by receiving God’s mercy and love - whoever we are and whatever we have or haven’t done.
