bibledex – The Book of Ruth


I am late to this (as Jim W apparently noted last month, I have not been a bloggin’ lately) but the University of Nottingham has an interesting project called bibledex. It is produced by the Department of Theology and Religious Studies aided by a journalist with a brilliant first name, Brady Haran. Below is their summary of the Book of Ruth. Not bad really. Alison Milbank‘s summary of the rabbinic interpretation is necessarily curt, but is not far off, “The rabbis read it as a book about steadfast loving kindness.”
