    Book Description. Ruth and Esther are the only two women for whom books of the Hebrew Bible are named. This distinction in itself sets the books apart from other biblical texts that bear male names, address the community through its male members, recall the workings of God and human history through a predominately male perspective, and look to the future through male heirs. The historical books are a division of the Christian Bible, grouping 12 (or in some denominations more) books in the Old Testament. In terms of the Tanakh, it includes the Former Prophets from the Nevi'im and two of the ungrouped books of Ketuvim, together with the Book of Ruth and the Book of Esther which in the Tanakh are both found in the Five Megillot.

    The Books of Ruth and Esther Session 1 Ruth 1 Why Study This Book? The Book of Ruth is one of the most dramatic books of prophecy in the Bible. The ancient Jewish Scriptures often included Ruth with the book of the prophets. The basic theme is that these 66 books are a single message system; every book, every name, every detail is there by design. The focus of this book is on the books of Ruth and Esther. The writer views Ruth as having been composed during the early monarchy (the reign of Solomon), a time when questions concerning God's presence and the manifestation of this presence in people's lives were a common concern.
