Using a bold contemporary art style, the comic presents every word of the biblical Book of Ruth, within its historical, cultural and geographical context. This graphic novel has 48 pages.
It employs a high view of scripture and the translation used is the World English Bible.
It is part of the graphic novel series, The Word for Word Bible Comic. Aimed primarily at adults and young adults, but suitable for ages 12+.
Under the capricious and increasingly faithless government of the Judges period, the promised land has become war-torn and desolate. Famine and death jolt this story into motion and make a family of God's chosen people into desperate refugees. The book of Ruth is at once historical and prophetic, it tells the intertwined story of two dauntless women and the integral parts they play within the ultimate
story of the Author and perfecter of all things.
"Very interesting. As clear a readable rendition of the Bible as I have seen. Makes biblical teaching more accessible to young and old alike." -John Wagner, Co-creator of Judge Dredd.
"Indeed, one might argue that The Word for Word Bible Comic is actually a more authentic presentation of the Bible than our bare printed texts, which invite us to fill a visual vacuum by supplying pictures in our own imagination of people and events." - Rev Dr Christopher R. Smith (Author of "Understanding the Books of the Bible" Study Guides from IVP. Doctorate in Historical Theology and the Bible.)
