Sex. Race. Scripture. Sovereignty. The book of Ruth entails them all. So listeners shouldn't be fooled by its age, says Pastor John Piper. Though its events happened over 3,000 years ago, the story holds astounding relevance for Christians in the 21st century.

The sovereignty of God, the sexual nature of humanity, and the gospel of God's mercy for the undeserving - these massive realities never change. And since God is still sovereign, and we are male or female, and Jesus is alive and powerful, A Sweet & Bitter Providence bears a message for listeners from all walks of life. But be warned, Piper tells his audience: This ancient love affair between Boaz and Ruth could be dangerous, inspiring all of us to great risks in the cause of love.

    " Piper shows with a case study what Ravi Zacharias teaches in The Grand Weaver: God's sovereignty turns all things to our good. When our dreams are shadowed by painful circumstances and impossibility threatens to take them away altogether, we need to take a good look at Who our God really is. His Word tells us, and the accounts of people's lives contained in it show us exactly why we can trust Him with our lives. Events are not random. God's love is perfect, and His plan perfectly works all things for our good to His glory. "

    " An interesting exposition on the life of Ruth and Naomi. John Piper helps us draw lessons in the providence of God from their story - how from a situation of complete hopelessness, God transforms the lives of Naomi and Ruth when they meet Boaz. The book is written in an interesting way and constantly relates the story to our present life experiences. "

    " Best part of this book is his discourse of God's Favor toward us and Boaz's blessing over Ruth "in the shadow of His wings" in Ruth 2:10-12. "

    " Excellent. Read it more as a devotional which I liked. I read in small chunks and felt I absorbed it more. Piper goes deep, but is easy to understand. I learned a lot about the book of Ruth. "
