E21: Ruth A - The Secret Hero

The Bible in 30 Seconds or Less

"Who is the hero of the book of Ruth? Ruth? Boaz?Well, I think Naomi is the secret hero of the book of Ruth. The story opens with her losing everything - no home, no husband, no sons.She doesn't react well. ""Call me bitter!"" She says. ""The Lord has brought me back empty!" "Yet at the end of the book the cry goes up, " "Naomi has a son!"" Naomi's hands are full again. God blesses bitter Naomi. Ruth was the devout outsider, Naomi the rebellious insider, and God was kind to both."
