From a lifelong love of studying and teaching the Scriptures, Don Harris takes an enigmatic character from the pages of antiquity, clothes him with flesh and blood, and presents him to you demanding your verdict. Was he a saint or sinner, or perhaps both? The uniqueness of Samson among all the other OT judges, from his birth announcement by the preincarnate Christ to his inclusion in the Hebrews hall of faith, has given him an aura of mystery unparalleled by his peers. The raw power and boldness with which he faced his enemies was on a scale unique to all other judges. Indeed, the Philistine war machine saw him as a formidable beast that defied everything they could bring against him. Samson: The Beast of Dan rips off the rose-colored glasses and plunges you into the raw-boned, lawless world of the judges.
