    Great resource highlighting the content structure, genre, intertextuality, literary and historical context, as well as theological themes in the book of Ruth Not as in depth with linguistic commentary, but provides valuable insight, particularly in establishing the sitz in leben and exploring its resulting social implications The author culls the traditional and current scholarship and points out some interesting connections with extra biblical literature Very helpful.
