How many books of the Bible are named after women?
ANSWER: 2 – Ruth and Esther.

1) The Book of Ruth (written between 1011 and 931 B.C.) does not specifically name its author. The tradition is that the Book of Ruth was written by the Prophet Samuel. This story of love and devotion tells of Ruth's eventual marriage to a wealthy man named Boaz, by whom she bears a son, Obed, who becomes the grandfather of David and the ancestor of Jesus. Obedience brings Ruth into the privileged lineage of Christ.
2) The Book of Esther(written between 460 and 350 B.C.) does not specifically name its author. The most popular traditions are Mordecai (a major character in the Book of Esther), Ezra and Nehemiah (who would have been familiar with Persian customs).The purpose of the Book of Esther is to display the providence of God, especially in regard to His chosen people, Israel.
