Product Description

"Everybody did what was right in their own eyes." Sound familiar? In the history of the nation of Israel, the period of the judges was not unlike today. This study is full of exciting drama - from Ehud the Knifer to Samson the Strong to Deborah the Leader. Their stories will inspire us to do what is right in God's eyes, no matter what the cost. Monday through Friday Bible study questions with devotional thoughts and light reading on the weekends are designed for group or individual study.

Publisher's Description

Java with the Judges is part of the Coffee Cup Bible Studies, a series of Bible studies for women in compact, workbook format that examine the "life and times" of certain Bible characters and the books of the Bible that pertain to them. Each study is to be read over a four-to-six week period, and study sections are broken down into short, daily segments designed to fit reader's busy lifestyles.
Understanding that time is precious, the Coffee Cup Bible Studies are patterned in such a convenient  way that they can be read during brief windows of opportunity  that allow for meditation and study (breakfast, lunch, coffee breaks, etc.). Scripture is provided from the NET Bible (New English Translation). making Bible study convenient for occasions when you can't carry a Bible.
As Sandra sprinkles unconventional thought processes throughout the study, she shatters preconceived myths about the commonly known judges and sheds light on the more obscure ones. As a result, more emphasis is placed on the vulnerabilities of these men and women and the fact that God chose each of these flawed creatures to use for His greater glory.

    Engaging and thought provoking study! Offers plenty of opportunities for self-reflection and application of scripture.The sections the book is broken down into can be a bit intimidating in length, though.Overall a very good! I could recommend.

    I am really enjoying this study and plan to use it with my study group in January and February. I will also be ordering other books in the series to use as well.

    What a tremendous resource Java with the Judges is! I'd read through Judges a bit perplexed, thankful to study the book in depth through the lenses of Glahn's impeccable research and warm writing style. I'm forever thankful for her insights, particularly this: "Even our flaws can't thwart God's purposes." She presents the judges as flawed, earthy folk and rightly points out God's sovereignty and power, despite loving a people prone to stray. I particularly enjoyed Glahn's discussion of women, how she debunks some common myths and elevates women in the process. An overall refreshing Bible study!

    For the woman who desires a more in-depth study in the Word of God (specifically the book of Judges), but with practical/devotional applicationslook no further! In a book of the Bible where failure to do the right thing is commonplace, Sandras insightful commentary challenges the readers own personal relationship with God. The book is perfect for small a group of women who want to start a Bible study, a Sunday School class, or just for the individual wanting to gain a further understanding into Judges. You will be blessed.

    A reader
    The Good Guys, The Good and the Reluctant, Good and Bad, Good or Bad?, Samson the Conflicted, The Ugly... sounds like the cast of characters for a mini-series, right? Welcome to Java with the Judges.Ms. Glahn's flair for humor, her conversational approach and her scholarly research combine to present Israel's judges as real people. Creative, conflicted, confused at times... Israel's own mini-drama. But Java with the Judges is not just a portrait gallery of Israel's top judges. Glahn takes readers from Biblical observation, to interpretation, to personal application. Yep, even the book of Judges has something applicable for each of us.One final note: Glahn suggests engaging God through this study with all five senses. Using the resources she provides on her website, you actually CAN create your own portrait gallery of Israel's top judges. Talk about a Bible Study that sticks with you!

Author/Artist Review

Author: Sandra Glahn

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Fifth-generation Oregonian. I believe we need to engage the five senses in our study of God's word. I'm a wife of one husband, mother of one child, and teacher of wonderful students at Dallas Seminary (DTS).I'm working on a PhD in Humanities - Aesthetic Studies after earning my ThM at DTS. I love Brothers Karamazov by Dostoevsky and Handel's Messiah. I also write medical thrillers (Lethal Harvest, Deadly Cure, False Positive). I think believers need to use our "sanctified imaginations." A developed imagination helps us imagine what it's like to be someone else, which in turn helps us "do unto others as we would have them do unto us."

    What was your motivation behind this project?  After years of doing Bible study, both solo and in a group, I envisioned the kind of study I would most that allowed active study on weekdays, passive devotionals (aimed at application) on the weekends, small enough to go in a diaper bag, that included the entire Bible text I'd need so I would not have to carry a heavy Bible to the doctor's office with me to study during free minutes; one that lent itself well to both individual and group study; one that appealed to more than the visual-only participant; and one that wasn't written like the writer had a perfect Christian life. It needed to have a binding I could file on my bookshelf but that had a spiral on it so I could write on it without the book flipping open. Voila! The Coffee Cup Bible Series.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  A life-changing encounter with the living God as the reader meets Him in His Word.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  One big influence on this book was the group at, who interacted artistically with the Espresso with Esther study. Some participants were non-artists, yet each found a way to give expession to her contemplations. What participants created is available for viewing on that site. I love the stories of Deborah, Jael, Hulduh, Samson's mother, and Hannah, each of whom appear in the pages of this particular study. Another of the Coffee Cup books considers Esther. There's also Mocha on the Mount (Sermon on the Mount) and Solomon Latte (Song of Songs).

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  My web site at has additional info that relates to each study. For example with the Java with the Judges study, I have links to art in which Samson or Deborah are portrayed, and links to additional study resources.
