Shavuot - Ruth’s Tale Provides Contemporary Guide

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/celebrations_simchas/article/shavuot_ruths_tale_provides_contemporary_guide_20050610

Rabbi Levi Meier is fond of saying that we are all on a journey, whether or not we know it. Of course, he is referring to life itself, and in his latest book, Meier illuminates that journey by looking at the compelling and sometimes tragic life of the biblical figure of Ruth. His book, "Second Chances: Transforming the Bitterness of Hope and the Story of Ruth," is at once a rich source of biblical scholarship and a guide designed to help readers deal with their own personal difficulties.
