Chapter 3 Well, what do we make of the opening 4 verses of this chapter?  Here Naomi is effectively suggesting that Ruth prostitute herself.  Are you prepared to offer-up your self-righteous virtue for your redemption?  And one must always listen to their mother-in-law (at least with one ear), if you [...]
