A theological introduction, exegesis, and reflection on the teaching of Judges for audiences today.

Judges is a book for our time. It forces readers to come face to face with fact that faith speaks into the topics and situations we deal with or read about in our newsfeeds. Matters of warfare, authoritarianism, sexual exploitation, and tribalism—these are a few of the repercussions from not having our social order oriented toward God.
