The Book of Ruth

Movie Review:
Genre: Drama
Runtime: 91 minutes
Release Date: December 15th, 2009

THE BOOK OF RUTH: JOURNEY OF FAITH is the classic Bible story of faith, loyalty, and redemption brought directly to DVD. During a time of famine, Elimelech moves from Israel to Moab with his wife Naomi and two sons. The sons marry women from Moab. Elimelech and both sons died, leaving Naomi and the son’s wives, Ruth and Orpa, as three widows. When Naomi learns that the famine in Israel has ended, she returns. Ruth shows tremendous loyalty by going with her, knowing that the chance she could remarry would be almost nil. Ruth goes to the fields of a relative, Boaz, to glean what is left when his harvesters have finished. She finds favor with Boaz, and he becomes her kinsman redeemer. Ruth becomes the mother of Obed, King David’s grandfather.

The budget and the quality of THE BOOK OF RUTH is more like a church drama than a Hollywood movie. It tells a strong story of redemption, however. As a conversation starter to talk about the Bible, this is an enjoyable DVD. Its message is far more uplifting than much of what Hollywood spends many millions making.
