For each section of the Bible, the Focus on the Bible Commentaries summarize the passage of Scripture, including the intentions of the authors, the historical and cultural environment, and the questions and issues raised by a particular passage. But most importantly, the Focus on the Bible Commentaries brings you into the heart of the Bible, by explaining Scripture in an accessible way that makes sense for daily Christian living.
In the lawless period of the history of Israel between the invasion of Canaan and the establishment of the monarchy there existed military leaders, national heroes called the Judges. The lesson of the book of Judges is that Israel's survival depended upon loyalty to God and that disloyalty always ended in disaster. It also shows God's faithfulness to his people when they turned in repentance.
The story of Ruth is set in the times of the Judges. It shows the blessings that came upon a foreigner when she turned to Israel's God at a time when Israel was turning away.
