Through the words of Jeremiah, the weeping prophet, Ruth reveals the God who makes wasted places come to life. The reader grasps the parable of the Prodigal Son as never before as Ruth discloses her own journey through that parable, first as the indignant older brother struggling to understand God's grace toward her husband's infidelity; then as the prodigal brother when her own actions bring deep shame and painful circumstances; and even in her role as the father, running to embrace her own children in the midst of bulimia, drug abuse, and unwed pregnancy.
Finally, Ruth includes practical steps in every chapter that anyone can take to offer care, support, and hope to the broken people they encounter in their lives and in the pews beside them every Sunday.
The broken and those who love them will run with Ruth to the arms of the God they can trust, the Father God who embraces, sustains, and redeems.

This book reminds me about the problems with abridged recordings. I found the book interesting, but uneven. Having not read the book, I don't know if that's because of the editing. I wish they'd offered it in an unabridged form.
