Praise for The Way Home
Weaving story with biblical truth is Tessa Afshar's specialty. In her new Bible study, The Way Home, Tessa invites us to discover truth for ourselves. Finding our story within the timeless story of Ruth, and discovering Jesus, our Kinsman Redeemer, afresh and anew. What a beautiful study!
Bestselling author of Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World
The crying need of the church today is for teachers, authors, and preachers to draw God's people deeper into God's Word. Tessa Afshar has done exactly that in her highly accessible study of Ruth, The Way Home. Part commentary, part study guide, Afshar invites readers into a profound interaction with arguably the Bible's most beloved book. The six-week plan will enable readers to open themselves in new ways to the book of Ruth, where they will find grace for the deepest recesses of their hearts. Highly recommended.

How do you pick up the pieces of your life when everything is seemingly ripped away? How do you fit in with others when you're the odd one out? How do you discover your life's meaning and purpose? Tessa Afshar addresses these questions and more in her beautiful study of the book of Ruth, The Way Home. With solid teaching on historical and biblical context, this study will provide life-changing insight with its application of faith principles. I highly recommend it for personal or small group studies.

The book of Ruth has long been a personal favorite, and Tessa Afshar is one of the most gifted writers I know. In The Way Home, we have the perfect combination of subject matter and teacher. Tessa's scholarship and mature understanding of Scripture coupled with her unique cultural background enables her to lead us through an in-depth study of Ruth in a way few others can. Just as Ruth found her destiny in companionship, I urge you to journey through this amazing story of redemption in community with others. You could not have a finer guide.

Are you currently on a life journey that includes both unknown and new? Then I highly recommend this Bible study by Tessa Afshar. This award-winning storyteller and Bible teacher takes readers deep into God's Word to mine the treasure that is the story of a woman who risked everything for God's ultimate plan. Being a word girl, I especially loved the careful teaching from the original biblical languages. But it is the exquisite imagery and historic sense of place—done so beautifully by this novelist—that make the book of Ruth come alive. I look forward to working through this study (including the video) with my own group of sisters and highly recommend you do the same. I'm better equipped for life after reading The Way Home!
