Ruth—a vision of perfect community

The book of Ruth could be subtitled: Ruth's recipe for much better community and international relations.

From the June 2004 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Many Bible readers are familiar with the story of Ruth, the woman who left her own community in order to go with her mother-in-law to her homeland after both of them had been widowed. It's a moving love story (see sidebar), but it also tells how people from different cultures can get along with each other.
