Unique and Effective
Janet Ruth has produced a group study that is wrapped in a unique and effective exterior. It introduces many of the prominent interpretations of varying theological topics in the Bible, and then gives the reader space to think about them, research them, discuss them, and draw their own conclusions. All of this is done in a way that breaks down the more technical aspects of the arguments into easy to understand summaries. Guidance is gently offered where errors occur in interpretation, but room is also given to create and form opinions within the boundaries of the discussion. Overall, this is a study that will open the door for many students of the Bible to dig deeper in their understanding of the Bible and finding answers to life’s larger questions.

A Worldview Primer
Whether we realize it or not, everyone of us holds a perspective about the world in which we live. For those who wish to think through their world view from a Christian perspective Janet Ruth has provided an informative workbook designed to introduce us to and guide us through the vital issues important for a coherent and Bible-based understanding of the world around us. Without telling us what to believe, Finding Your Part In God’s Master Story supplies plausible world-view options within the boundaries of the Christian faith, while coaching the reader to consider which options best corresponds to the biblical message. Janet Ruth’s readable treatment of one’s world view would be a valuable tool for any small group, classroom, or individual who needs an understandable, thought-provoking, guide for finding one’s “part in God’s master story.”
