The Story of Ruth: Twelve Moments in Every Woman's Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written thousands of years ago, the biblical story of Ruth still speaks eloquently today, calling us to reflect on what it means to be a truly whole and spiritual woman. In The Story of Ruth best-selling author Joan D. Chittister and celebrated artist John August Swanson together reclaim this powerful story as a model for contemporary women seeking a truly whole and spiritual woman.

In concert with Swanson's rich and evocative art, Chittister's graceful but challenging prose explores, through this timeless biblical story, a series of twelve defining moments in every woman's life — moments of loss, change, transformation, aging, indpendence, respect, recognition, insight, empowerment, self-definition, invisibility, and fulfillment.

A lovely blend of art and text, The Story of Ruth provides inspirational help for women seeking wholeness in a world still struggling with issues of gender and faith, and offers compelling devotional images for eyes and mind alike.

Review:

"Joan Chittister and John August Swanson's Story of Ruth is an easy, wise, and instructive lens through which to view one of the gems of the Hebrew Bible. So creative and engaging, The Story of Ruth is in the highest Jewish tradition of reading 'between the lines' of scripture....It should be required reading for Christians and Jews, women and — above all — men." Rabbi Lawrence Kushner

Synopsis:

Reclaiming the powerful biblical story of Ruth as a model for contemporary women seeking a fully spiritual life, Chittister and Swanson explore a series of defining moments in a woman's life — from loss and change to aging and insight. 12 color illustrations.
