  8. A. The Book is characterized by a sense of warmth. The relationships between persons are deep and sensitive (e.g. 1:15-18; 2:8-13; 3:1-5; 4:13-17) B. This Book is positive in orientation. There is no antagonist; no one (not even Orpah) is presented in a negative light. C. The Book begins and ends with declarations re. Naomi from the women of Bethlehem, and both involve naming (1:19-21; 4:13-17)
