Fleming H. Revell 1890

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


John Lang’s Gideon and the Judges: A Study Historical and Practical is a practical exposition on the life of Gideon and the Judges of Israel. Beginning his commentary with an introduction and historical sketch of Israel during the time of the Judges, Lang outlines practically what life was like for Israel during the period of the Judges. After his introduction Lang discusses the lives of some notable figures in the book of Judges; men like Gideon, Jephthah, and Samson are discussed in some detail. Lang’s offering is a useful tool for studying the lives of the Judges through the lens of select men living during the time.

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.”
