This volume, using multiple methods, seeks to bring together the best scholarship and insight-Jewish and Christian, past and present-that has contributed to our understanding and appreciation of the biblical book of Ruth. As a feminist commentary, it is particularly sensitive to issues of relationship and inclusion, power and agency. In addition to the voices of the primary co-authors, Alice Laffey and Mahri Leonard-Fleckman, the volume incorporates and integrates important contributing voices from diverse contemporary social contexts and geographical locations. In sum, the commentary seeks to allow Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz to speak again for the first time.
"This commentary is truly a dialogical work and incorporates complementary and opposing perspectives in a cohesive narrative meant for biblical scholars, pastors, and anyone seeking a deeper understanding of Scripture. Laffey and Leonard-Fleckman beautifully unite many voices and unique perspectives in their commentary on Ruth and animate this text with a new vitality." - Catholic Library World
