A Sweet and Bitter Providence: Sex, Race, and the Sovereignty of God by John Piper

John Piper examines the book of Ruths relevant, unchangingthemes and its dangerous ability to inspire twenty-first-centuryreaders in the cause of love. Sex. Race. Scripture. Sovereignty. The book of Ruth entails themall. So readers shouldnt be fooled by its age, says Pastor JohnPiper. Though its events happened over 3,000 years ago, the storyholds astounding relevance for Christians in the twenty-firstcentury. The sovereignty of God, the sexual nature of humanity, and thegospel of Gods mercy for the undeserving-these massive realitiesnever change. And since God is still sovereign, and we are male orfemale, and Jesus is alive and powerful, A Sweet and BitterProvidence bears a message for readers from all walks of life.But be warned, Piper tells his audience: This ancient love affairbetween Boaz and Ruth could be dangerous, inspiring all of us togreat risks in the cause of love.
