Ruth and Esther, Knowing the Bible Series, by Kathleen Nielson
- Author: Kathleen B. Nielson
- Editor: J. I. Packer
- Editor: Lane T. Dennis
The Knowing the Bible series is a new resource designed to help Bible readers better understand and apply God's Word. Each 12-week study leads participants through one book of the Bible and is made up of four basic components: (1) Reflection questions designed to help readers engage the text at a deeper level; (2) "Gospel Glimpses" highlighting the gospel of grace throughout the book; (3) "Whole-Bible Connections" showing how any given passage connects to the Bible's overarching story of redemption culminating in Christ; and (4) "Theological Soundings" identifying how historic orthodox doctrines are taught or reinforced throughout Scripture. With contributions from a wide array of influential pastors and church leaders, these gospel-centered studies will help Christians see and cherish the message of God's grace on each and every page of the Bible.
There are only two books in the Bible named after women: Ruth and Esther. And yet, these books recount two of the most memorable stories in all of Scripture: Ruth, a displaced widow in search of a new home and loving husband, and Esther, a courageous queen intent on saving her people from imminent destruction. Throughout this study, skilled Bible teacher Kathleen Nielson leads readers on a journey of discovery and wonder as they are acquainted with the God who hears to the cries of his people and remains faithful to his promises.
