A Different Kind of Love Story

The story of Ruth is usually viewed through a Hallmark-tinted lens: girl suffers hardship, girl overcomes hardship, boy meets girl, they fall in love, and then everyone lives happily ever after.

But there's so much more to Ruth's story!

Bible teacher and retreat leader Dorina Lazo Gilmore-Young invites us to view the book of Ruth through a different lens—one that helps us recognize how this story proclaims God's heart for the vulnerable, including widows, orphans, immigrants, refugees, and the poor. As Ruth's story unfolds, we discover that God is the main character and that he is the true Redeemer, for Ruth and for us today. This six-week Bible study features

  • Videos directly from Dorina to start each weekly group session
  • Biblical teaching that proclaims God's love for the marginalized,
  • Individual reflections for each day of the week for deeper study and sustained engagement throughout the week.

Join Dorina for the next six weeks and be captivated by God's magnificent love!

These Bible studies offer you a fresh opportunity to engage with Scripture. Each study includes:

  • weekly sessions for a group of any size
  • access to weekly teaching videos
  • five days of individual study and reflection each week

The refreshing, accessible, and insightful content from trusted Bible teachers will encourage you in your faith!

"Dorina Lazo Gilmore-Young's passion for God's Word shines through in this insightful Bible study. Redeemer will immerse you in the book of Ruth, offering a fresh reading of God's enduring truth. Gather your friends and dive into the study."
