Travel along with Ruth, too, and experience her time in the newly born country of Israel (1953-54), thrill to her unique love story (she and her “Boaz” had their first date four days after they were engaged – obviously God was their matchmaker!), and learn of the inception of the Hebrew Christian Witness by Divine Guidance.

But with this Presence by our side the fears and forebodings were hushed, and the pain of widowhood soothed."
