Marcia Goldlist presented me her poetry meets Bible stories. Following her take on Genesis in Enjoying Genesis: The Bible in Rhyme Workbook, she finished Enjoying the Book of Ruth: The Bible in Rhyme. The book of Ruth is read by Jews during the holiday of Shavuot which falls this year on May 24th and 25th, not coincidentally the release date of Goldlist’s latest effort to make popular Bible stories easy to read, or sing if you want. Naomi leaving her two daughters in law: “Why should you come with me? Are there any more sons in my womb that could be your husbands, if you agree? Turn back, my daughters, go on your way! I am too old to have a husband; I will not lead you astray.” The Moabite Ruth answering: “Your people will be my people, and your God my God on high. Where you die, I will die.” 30 pages of simple poetry takes you from the flee to Moab until the birth of Obed, the father of Jesse, the father of David, one of the pivotal moments in Jewish history.
