Ruth (The Anchor Bible, Volume 7.

53169/?tag prabook0b-20. Finding no overt mighty acts, the layman asks, 'Why was Ruth included in the Bible at all? Where is God?

It is the work of a person standing in the mid-stream of Israelite life and thought, a person wishing to communicate to his audience things very close to the heart of the Old Testament. Introduction & Prologue: The Book of Ruth begins by highlighting the Judges theme of Israel needing a king and exploring the misery and emptiness a singular family might experience during these dark times (Ruth 1:1–6). All the males of this Israelite family leave Bethlehem and die in Moab, leaving Naomi without a male relative to care for her.

Edward F. Campbell, J. is Professor of Old Testament at McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago.

Finding no overt mighty acts, the layman asks, "Why was Ruth included in the Bible at all? Where is God?"

Several Bible books are covered over the course of multiple volumes. Ruth (Vol. 7 ) by Edward F. Campbell, Jr. (2003). 7D) by Jeremy Schipper (2016).

Top Protestant, Catholic and Jewish scholars have all brought their skills to bear on the Old and New Testaments, as well as the Apocrypha. Several Bible books are covered over the course of multiple volumes. This speaks to the depth of the scholarship represented in the AYBC.

  • This is an excellent scholarly study of the biblical book of Ruth. It provides a large amount of information and many intelligent interpretations of incidences in the book. For example:

    The book of Ruth states that ruth lay down at Boaz’s feet. How should we understand “feet”? Campbell in Anchor Bible lists citations where feet may be a euphemism for sex: Exodus 4:25, Judges 3:24, I Samuel 24:3, II Kings 18:27, Isaiah 6:3, 36:12, Ezekiel 16:25.

    When Naomi sent Ruth to Boaz, didn’t she know that there was a closer relative than Boaz to her who had the first rights to marry Ruth – Mr. So and so? Campbell suggests that Naomi may have known about “So and so” but this was her “ploy to force him (Boaz) to act, or to start the ball rolling toward marriage whether to another person or to himself.”

    Boaz settled the arrangement with So and so by one of the two handing the other a show. What was happening? Campbell takes the view: taking off the shoe (by “So and so”) and handing it to another (Boaz) was symbolically ceding one’s right and giving the right to another.

  • GOOD BOOK.

  • This series continues to be among the finest available. Some of the older ones could use revision, but in general they remain a gold standard. (I was a little unimpressed with the Hebrew analysis in this particular version; hence the 4 star rating.)

  • very good

  • I am a scientist, not a Hebrew scholar, but I love this book and it, in turn, has given me a love for the book of Ruth.

    A Hebrew professor once told me this was the best English language commentary on Ruth, but that doesn't do it justice. It is a joy to read. The translation is lively and the commentary is totally engrossing. Even the textual notes are accessible and worthwhile reading for the layman. An example from the notes: (The Hebrew text injects) "a note of sly and good-humored wonder: `Well, what do you know, they arrived in Bethlehem for the barley harvest--just the right time!'"
