The Way Home: A Study of Ruth

The Way Home: God’s Invitation to New Beginnings is an in-depth study of Ruth. Perhaps surprisingly, the book starts in Judges, because that is when the story of Ruth takes place. It is the context of our study, and if we really want to understand these people, we have to understand their times. Instead of a sweet love story, we begin in deep trials, errors, sad failures, and God’s gracious response to every single mistake.

“By walking through that door of faith, Ruth has unknowingly allowed the solutions of God to permeate her life.” – Tessa Afshar, The Way Home

I was part of the launch team for The Way Home and a long-time fan of Tessa Afshar. When you have high expectations of an author and they do not disappoint.

Tessa is a master weaver of words peeling away the biblical layers and her cultural knowledge of the times. Ruth teaches us how God works on our behalf in the middle of the storms of our lives, to persevere. Though only four chapters, there is a lot to unpack with Ruth’s story. Yes, God grants us grace when we struggle, He open’s our eyes to truth and breaths hope into our soul.

“The Way Home, God’s Invitation To New Beginnings,” can be done as an individual study or as a group study. I enjoyed all the bible verses and took lots of notes. I highly recommend the study.
