Real Lives (Ruth and Esther)

The books of Ruth and Esther are often looked at together even though the two women lived hundreds of years apart. Ruth was a foreigner who became part of Israel whilst Esther was an Israelite living in a hostile, foreign land. In each book we see four very different individuals. There is a “character sheet” which we will fill in as we go through the studies.
