The Book of Judges is an exegetical and expositional work on the text of Judges. H. C. O. Lanchester moves through the book of Judges section-by-section, highlighting important aspects and point from the text of Judges. Likewise, Lanchester’s introduction is concise and packed with useful information for the student of Judges.

This volume is essential for students, scholars, pastors, historians, teachers of the Bible, or anyone studying the book of Judges. With Logos Bible Software, this volume is completely searchable, with passages of Scripture appearing on mouse-over, as well as being linked to the Greek and Latin texts and English translations in your library. This makes the text more powerful and easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or personal Bible study. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “donkey” or “Judges 14:1.”
