The church has a problem with Judges; it is so earthly, puzzling, primitive and violent - so much so that the church can barely stomach it. To many it falls under the category of 'embarrassing scripture'. Such an attitude is, of course, wrong - so Ralph Davis here makes Judges digestible by analyzing the major literary and theological themes discovered in each section. He provides a 'theocentric' exposition that rings with practical relevance.
