Lovely book I am Ruth a story of Loss, Love, & Redemption by Kenneth Berg and Brenda Duff

I am Ruth : A Story of Loss, Love, and Redemption
 by Kenneth Berg and Brenda Duff

I am Ruth brings to life the beautiful Biblical story of Ruth with artistic and vivid authentic photographs.
Let the scriptural account, the breathtaking photos, and the deeper insights help you look afresh at this enduring true story of love from tragic loss.
There really isn't much else to say about this book, except: get it! I think this photographic style of book is wonderful for children, who are usually very visual. I try to steer clear of ''googly-eyed'' Bible character books, but this book is honoring to God in that it is beautiful, artistic and authentic as well as Biblically-sound and containing the entire story of Ruth!
  • View the vivid, full-color images from within Israel and near the historic locale of Ruth’s life.
  • Survey the social and cultural details that come alive to enhance your understanding of this profound story of loss, faith, loyalty, and love.
  • Better understand the important biblical and genealogical connections.
One of the most beloved and enduring accounts of the Bible, Ruth’s story is one of tragedy. Here is the true account of a young widow who chooses to leave the land of her birth for the unknown lands of her mother-in-law, Naomi, who is returning home bitter and angry at God for the loss of her husband and two sons.
More than just a simple love story, I Am Ruth is about courageously facing life after loss, rediscovering faith, and fearlessly placing yourself and your future in God’s loving hands. This text brings to light the full humanity found in the biblical account, and makes it personal for every reader who has suffered in life’s shadows longing to see God’s plan.
