Dr. Barbara Boyd on the Book of Ruth

Dr. Barbara Boyd on the Book of Ruth from Bruce Prescott on Vimeo.

Dr. Barbara Boyd, an ordained Presbyterian minister and Professor of Religion at the University of Oklahoma, preaches a sermon on the book of Ruth at the United Ministry Center on January 17, 2013. Boyd's sermon was part of a series of sermons by different ministers speaking at the United Church of Norman on the topic "The Sermon I Always Wanted to Preach but Never had a Chance."

Dr. Boyd's unique interpretation of the Book of Ruth is thought-provoking and prophetic. It may prove challenging to feminist theologians and will certainly be controversial among fundamentalist Christians.

This is most impresive. I would like to be a member of her church.
