To Aid Understanding Of Ruth
Destiny Survivor by Amber Joy Daniel is a re-telling of the Biblical story of Ruth.
The novel adds legs to the familiar story enabling the characters to become fully rounded and realistic. We learn of the hopes, the dreams and the daily goings on.
We witness a new relationship with God, from its budding to a heart that hears from God.
Sometimes we have questions for God. “Why do you allow… There was no answer except His peace.” And sometimes we do not even need an answer to receive the peace of God. There are some questions that will never be answered this side of heaven.
The tale fills in some early biblical tales as well. We see the progression of the ancestors of Jesus.
Destiny Survivor is a powerful read. It is not meant to be read instead of the Bible story of Ruth but alongside it to aid understanding. Ruth is one of my favourite Old Testament stories. I will leave you with my favourite quote:
“Where you go, I also go. Your people will be my people, and your God is already my God.”
