The Book of Ruth

The Book of Ruth Sex, Drugs, and Violence Rating

Exactly how violent and steamy is this story?


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.
