Ruth: An Uncommon Grace

The Book of Ruth is a beautiful exploration of power and vulnerability, grace and creating space for strangers. And it is also the only biblical text to describe and celebrate female friendship. We will do a close reading of Ruth, utilizing both traditional and modern commentaries.

Nancy, David and Jonathan Goldhill, in memory of their mother, Barbara C. Freedman
