The Book of Ruth

The Book of Ruth Sex, Drugs and Violence Rating

Exactly how violent and steamy is this story?

G

The Book of Ruth is completely drug and violence free. We'd say it's sex-free, too, but then there's the whole scene where Ruth uncovers Boaz's "feet." Scandalous. But, hey, if you won't tell, then we won't.
