  • Book Of Judges

    $40.05

    Eminently readable, exegetically thorough, and written in an emotionally warm style that flows from his keen sensitivity to the text, Barry Webb’s commentary on Judges is exactly what is needed to engage properly a dynamic, narrative work like the book of Judges. It offers helpful guidance to Christian preachers, teachers, students, and other readers not only on unique features of the stories themselves but also on issues such as the violent nature of Judges, how women are portrayed in it, and how it relates to the Christian gospel of the New Testament. Rather than overload the body of his commentary, Webb concentrates on what the biblical text itself throws into prominence, and he gives space to background issues only where they throw significant light on the foreground. For those who want more, the footnotes provide helpful guidance. The end result is a welcome resource for interpreting one of the most challenging books in the Old Testament.
