The Book of Ruth: Journey of Faith is a 2009 Christian film directed by Stephen Patrick Walker. It is based on the Book of Ruth, and was aired January 8, 2010 on the Trinity Broadcasting Network. The film stars Dan Haggerty, Lana Wood, Eleese Lester, Carman, and Sherry Morris as Ruth.[1]


The Book of Ruth is about a Moabite woman who loses her husband, her father-in-law, and her brother-in-law. With no man to provide for her and the rest of her family, their mother-in-law decides to set them free for them to be able to remarry. But, Ruth stays with her mother-in-law out of the great love that she has for her. The both travel to Israel in hopes of a better harvest and probably even a better life. There Ruth meets Boaz, a man of noble character. He takes care of Ruth by letting her glean in his property and making sure she is safe in his field. Naomi and Ruth then decided to take the situation in their own hands by making Ruth do an certain noble act - laying down near his feet when he was sleeping at the threshing floor. She then asks Boaz to redeem her family and so he does. But, before he gets to do so, he must be able to get through the a closer relative Naomi's family has. In the end, Boaz and Ruth was able to get married and after a while they gave birth to a son whom they named, Obed. From Obed came the line of King David.



The DVD, which includes bonus featurettes including "The Making Of", "Trailers", and "Commentary", was released December 15.[2]
