Hubbard, The Book of Ruth

Over the past two months I gave teachings at The Grove on the book of Ruth. I like to share what books and commentaries helped me and might help someone else someday in the future.

The actual book of Ruth takes up about 3 pages in your Bible.  Robert L. Hubbard Jr’s New International Commentary on the Old Testament on The Book of Ruth is over 300. That should give you some idea as to the depth and detail found in this book. It’s almost like you need a little bit of Hebrew in order to understand it, as Hubbard just throws Hebrew words into the text as if everyone gets it. It’s a great commentary for details and exegeting the actual text. There’s not much that will make it into a sermon, but it will help you to know that your sermon is true to the text.
