Synopsis

The "Book of Ruth" is important because it features a female protagonist which was very rare at that time. It also serves as one of the first short stories ever in recorded history. This research attempts to show how the overall structure of the story is laid out and shows the legacy of "Ruth" in biblical theology, art, literature, and music. Gladson attempts to provide the most extensive scholarly treatment of the biblical book of "Ruth" to date. His exegesis looks at the way the story has been interpreted by biblical scholars, in music, art, literature, and culture. It is an amazing attempt to draw out as much material as possible considering the short length of the "Book of Ruth", and the topics covered show an experienced scholar detailing what can be known and what is yet to be known about "Ruth". Questions of authorship, origin, historical and literary importance are all addressed precisely because it is one of the only books in the Old Testament depicting a female protagonist in a positive light. "Ruth" is also considered to be one of the first written attempts at the short story genre.
