Joshua/Judges/Ruth - InterVarsity PressSpring has sprung here in Tennessee and not a moment too soon! This volume was especially meaningful for us since it includes the story of Joshua after whom my son was named. He beamed with pride at every mention of his name and reminded us often that he too is strong and courageous. This portion of the Story is so important to our faith and often only taught to kids through simple storytelling. But more than mere stories, there are life-applicable truths to be found in every chapter of the Bible. The learning continues as we encounter the Judges God sent to help his people turn their attention back to him.
Family Journey Through Joshua, Judges & Ruth
Ruth is an appendix to the book of Judges, contemporary with the first half of Judges. The main role in this story is like a lily growing out of brambles and a bright star in the dark night. The book of Ruth is also an important part of the genealogy of Christ Matt. In the whole universe, there is nothing greater than the incarnation of Christ. After the eternal God created man, He was nearly silent for four thousand years. During that time no one knew what God was doing.
Spring Break is upon us and, hopefully, that means some extended time together as a family! Plan a couple of nights over the next week where your family can take some time to learn from the books of Joshua, Judges and Ruth about a God who goes before us to defeat our enemies and patiently provides for the ones He loves!
