On October 22, 1971, while sitting in a car looking over the sea at a place called “Manly” in Brisbane, Australia, I asked Mally to marry me. (Can you imagine getting engaged at “Manly”?!) At the moment she said those beautiful words “I will!” neither of us had any idea of where the Lord would lead us. Many years later I realized how God had been preparing each of us for the special ministry we were to be called into, for 15 years later, in 1986, Mally and I made an important decision that would change our lives dramatically.
So begins the powerful story written by Ken and Steve Ham talking about Ken’s move from Australia to an entirely different culture and how that move echoes Ruth in the Bible and how that plays out in family life in A Girl Named Ruth.
