In From Chaos to Kingship: An In-Depth Exploration of Megillat Rut, Rabbi Chaim Jachter offers new solutions to both classic and previously unaddressed issues in the study of Megillat Rut and Tanakh. Combining traditional commentaries with innovative interpretations, From Chaos to Kingship provides key insights into the challenges courageously faced and overcome by Rut, Naomi, Boaz and the people of Beit Lechem during a very difficult time period, and applies the lessons to contemporary Hashkafic issues. From Chaos to Kingship comprises an intensive study of how Rut, a wise and kind newcomer, helped transform Am Yisrael from the chaos of the Shofetim era to the greatness of the Davidic monarchy.
