Digging for Treasure: Three Funerals and a Wedding: The Message of Ruth Today edited by Derek J Balsdon
This book adds to our Digging for Treasure resources for expository preaching by exploring the book of Ruth. Russell Herbert’s sermon on Ruth 1 provides a great example of an expository sermon, focusing on tragedy and hope, and his chapter on Ruth 3 looks at how he would preach it. John Haley, in his sermon on chapter 2 explores God’s providential covenant-love. The book ends with John Haley opening up Ruth 4 through sharing a guide to sermon preparation. All these contributions help us to explore the book of Ruth, and how to share its message in this 21st century.
