I appreciated the great commentary as I prepared a sermon series on the Book of Ruth. As I read I also enjoyed the woodcuts.

Rather than a comment to S. J. Crews, I prefer if I may to review directly to his review. The woodcuts are excellent and Margaret Parker's art work reflects her close interpretation with Ellen Davis. But the attention Crews' review gives to Davis' scholarship and charm of presentation is so just-right. I've read all her books, even the one that may still not be in reprint. By all means search for it. A complete reading of her texts, plus articles you may be able to find, gives an orienting theology that is incredible. I don't know every Bible scholar in the world but still I say she's the best Bible scholar in the world and don't worry about it. That has to be close enough.

Wonderful Translation and Commentary22 June 2005 - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a must read for anyone interested in the book of Ruth. Ellen Davis does a wonderful job of translating and commenting on the passages. She explains Hebrew words and lets you know when a passage is ambiguous. She will offer other possible ways to translate a passage and gives clear explanations. I love when she reflects on the use of the same Hebrew word or phrase in other places in Ruth or elsewhere in Scripture. It totally absorbed me, and I am looking forward to reading it again--I want to remember every gem. I have now put all her writings on my wish list, and I hope she will translate more books of Scripture!
