Ruth: Relationships That Bring Life (Paperback)
Bring Hope, Faith, and Love to Your Relationships.
The biblical character of Ruth was striking in her capacity to bring life to her relationships. Even in the midst of tragedy and difficulty, her presence blessed and influenced friends and strangers in her community, the man she grew to love, her children, and her in-laws.
This six-week Fisherman Bible Studyguide uses Ruth's story to help you reflect on your own relationships and the ways in which God might be inviting you to move different ways--ways that will lead you into life-giving patterns of relating with others.
Fisherman Bible Studyguides offer:
* Penetrating questions that generate discussion
* Flexible format for group or individual needs
* Helpful leader's notes
* Emphasis on daily application of Bible truth.
