When tragedy and sorrow strike, we often feel that God is far from us. We feel as if we’ve been abandoned. However, the book of Ruth reminds us that God offers hope to the hopeless. In this message from Ruth 1, David Platt shows us that God takes our tragedies and turns them into unexpected triumph. At the close of one of Scripture’s bleakest chapters, we get a glimpse of God’s mercy and faithfulness.
David Platt serves as pastor at McLean Bible Church in Washington, D.C. He is the founder and president of Radical. He is the author of several books, including Radical, Radical Together, Follow Me, and Counter Culture.
