The book of Judges forms an important link in the history of Israel. It furnishes a lively description of a fluctuating and unsettled nation; a striking picture of the disorder and danger of a republic without magistracy, and a theocracy where Yahweh was forgotten and “everyone did that which was right in his own eyes” (Jdg. 17:6). It exhibits the contest of true religion with superstition, and shows the benefits of the former and the evils of the latter. Unbridled savage self-justification were some of the evils which resulted in consequence.
Presented in a verse-by-verse exposition, this book is valuable to the study of one of the more difficult of Bible books. It is bound in soft cover, with 382 pages.
