In her new book Colliding with Destiny, Sarah Jakes explores the book of Ruth to harvest for us what messages she might have for people today. Ruth has long been one of my favorite books of the Bible. As a feminist, I appreciate the fact it is led by two strong women. As an armchair Biblical scholar, I like to explore the world in which Ruth and Naomi lived in order to better understand them. As a woman who has seen suffering, I love all of the lessons Ms. Jakes takes out of Ruth’s story just for me.
