I just finished preaching the book of Ruth with my church.  I looked back at the last few months preaching through Ruth and I thought about how one of the most powerful moment in the book was when Ruth, a widow, profess her loyalty to her mother in law Naomi and how Ruth was going to stay with her mother in law to help this older widow out.  Listen to the words of Ruth 1:16=

But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you or turn back from following you; for where you go, I will go, and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God.

What particularly stands out to me is the last part of the verse: “Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God.

While reading a recent history book I found out how this verse was quoted and used in another important historical moment.

This work is about how the Great War/World War One was a different military conflict than the wars that came before it since it was a war in which the world entered a new age with modern warfare.  I think the author presented his case quite persuasively with his focus being primarily on the British then German and French developments in the Western front.  I enjoyed this work in audio book format and found that the work overall was informative and interesting.  It was also read in such a way that helped the listeners endure over thirteen hours of materials without any problem.
