Judges: Volume 8

Full Product Description

This commentary features the most extensive text critical notes available in any modern commentary on Judges. It presents a theological reading of the present text of the book and seeks to show that current literary and source theories attributing various parts and even minute pieces of the book to a long series of editors over almost a millennium of time are not needed to explain the origin and purposes of the book.

This volume of the WBC argues for a much earlier date of the book in the reigns of Rehoboam and Jeroboam and shows how Judges is designed as a reversal of the structure and achievements of the "Book of Joshua", preparing the way for the Davidic line of kings. The commentary underlines Judges' ironic presentation of its major characters as heroes and failures. The commentary wrestles with the nature and expectations of leadership in Judges.

Judges: Volume 8 by Trent Butler was published by Paternoster Press in July 2000 and is our 16142nd best seller. The ISBN for Judges: Volume 8 is 9780849902079.
