The Church has a problem with Judges, it is so earthy, puzzling, primitive and violent - so much so that the Church can barely stomach it. It falls under the category 'embarrassing scripture'. Such an attitude is, of course, wrong so Ralph Davis here makes Judges digestible by analysing the major literary and theological themes discovered in each section, providing a 'theocentric' exposition.
This was a very edifying and enjoyable Bible commentary through the book of Judges. The commentary divides Judges into three parts with a total of twenty one chapters. I think anyone who is studying the book of Judge will find this commentary as an indispensable resource. The great thing about the way the author writes is that it is accessible for preachers as well as the person in the pew.
"an excellent... crisp, lively... exposition on Judges."
"Dr. Davis has a great sense of fun. He must often have his class or his congregation in stitches!"
"The most practical expository work that this reviewer has ever encountered."
There is here much practical biblical instruction for the believer and the church. This is an excellent presentation.

James Cain5 Stars Out Of 5October 17, 2008James CainEven though this book was not what I really needed when purchased; I still give it five stars, because its a very well written book that will easily give the reader a great understanding of Judges.I highly recommend it. JC
Jim Butler5 Stars Out Of 5July 27, 2008Jim ButlerThis is a first rate commentary. Dr. Davis thoroughly, interestingly, humorously, and reverently explains the text of Scripture. He magnifies God throughout; or, he shows how the Bible magnifies God throughout. When Dr. Davis' books are on the front cover of CBD's catalog instead of Joel Osteen's, I will believe the church is seeing revival.
D. Brunson5 Stars Out Of 5October 2, 2007D. BrunsonI discovered Dale Ralph Davis about a year ago and have purchased everything he has written. His commentary on Judges will become a classic. In this commentary Davis has an incredible insight into the text. He has the unique ability to summarize without cutting out the heart of the message. He will add a depth to your preaching from this wonderful Old Testament book, and instruction for application. Thank you Dr. Davis for your investment in my ministry through your commentaries.
