The past 40 years have witnessed profound changes in the study of early Israel as the pendulum of scholarship has swung toward literary and theological readings not significantly informed by the literature of the ancient Near East. Jack M. Sasson’s commentary on the first 12 chapters of Judges is a refreshing reversal of this trend. It aims to expand comprehension of the Hebrew text by explaining its meaning, exploring its contexts, and charting its effect over time.

Sasson addresses issues about the techniques that advance the text’s objectives, the impulses behind its composition, the motivations behind its preservation, the diversity of interpretations during its transmission in several ancient languages, and the learned attention it has gathered over time in faith traditions, Jewish, Christian, and Muslim.

Sasson does not shy away from citing variant or divergent readings in the few Judges fragments and readily calls on testimonies from diverse Greek, Aramaic, and Latin renderings. This impressive new appreciation of Judges will be of immense interest to bible specialists, theologians, cultural historians, and students of the ancient world.
