Eminently readable, exegetically thorough, and written in an engaging style that flows from his keen sensitivity to the text, Barry Webb’s The Book of Judges is just what is needed to properly interact with a dynamic, narrative work like the Old Testament book of Judges. It discusses not only unique features of the stories themselves but also such issues as the violent nature of Judges, how women are portrayed, and how it relates to the Christian gospel of the New Testament.
