From famine to harvest, from death to birth, from chaos to kingdom – the story of Ruth, Naomi and Boaz had a profound effect on their culture. Set in the time when there was ‘no king in Israel’, the love story of Ruth and Boaz led down the generations to King David and ultimately to the central theme of the Bible: the coming of the kingdom of God.


In this book, Peter Lyne draws on his own lifetime of experience to show how the timeless principles at work in the story of Ruth have just as much power to change our world today. There are questions at the end of each chapter to provoke thought and discussion about what these principles might look like in readers’ own lives. This study of the book of Ruth is suitable for use in house groups or for personal Bible study.


Peter Lyne left his job as a teacher of physical education and religious education in 1966 and is now celebrating fifty years in Christian ministry. From the earliest days of the charismatic movement in the UK and as a key figure in the development of new church networks, his primary gifting as a prophetic teacher has been recognised across the denominational spectrum. He and his wife, Linda, are now based in New Zealand and still travel extensively overseas. They have three children, who have also adopted New Zealand as their home, and they now have ten Kiwi grandchildren who are a constant source of inspiration.
