"It was a time of heroes, of daring rescues and mighty warriors, of merciless enemies and epic battles; a time of fear, a time of revenge, a time when every man did what was right in his own eyes". Or that's how the movie trailer would go. The book of Judges is one of the most dark and gruesome parts of the Bible, in which Israel lurches from sin to judgement to salvation and back again with grim regularity. But it is more than just history. It is written to show us the character of our God, and how He deals with His people. And it contains both strong warnings and encouragements for Christians today. Author Mark Baddeley takes us through Judges in ten finely crafted studies, which are suitable for Bible study groups and individuals.
