Borders & Belonging The Book of Ruth: A Story for our Times

By Pádraig Ó Tuama & Glenn Jordan

Amid the poorly told, blunt stories in our world today that divide, polarize and reinforce stereotypes, this lyrical and imaginative book invites us to explore a timeless human drama that reveals how we might respond more creatively to pressing current issues about borders and belonging.

The ancient story of Ruth tells of an outsider, a migrant facing uncertainty in a strange land, a vulnerable female in a foreign culture; yet Ruth draws out generosity and justice and is herself the gift that will shape a new future for the people she chose as her own.
