Right in Their Own Eyes explains Judges from three Old Testament and three New Testament perspectives. First, it shows how the Spirit enabled wayward people to fulfill the mission God gave them, promotes David as king of Israel, and illustrates God’s covenant with his people. Schwab then shows how God sovereignly works among his wayward people to forge a community of faith under the New Covenant—realized in Christ—calls modern Christians to faith and obedience, and looks forward to the return of Christ and the final judgment.

George Schwab achieves four goals. First, to be true to the text—to read Judges in its ancient Near Eastern setting, seeing it as a sermon on Deuteronomy and, at times, a possible apologetic for David. Second, to glorify Christ—to read Judges from a biblical-theological perspective, finding that Judges is really all about Christ and his coming kingdom. Third, to lift us up in faith—which happens when we see our sovereign God at work, forging a community of faith from a wayward and idolatrous people. And finally, to call us to change our perspective and take action—why does it matter that faith leads to deliverance? What does a lack of faith in daily life reap in terms of oppression, and how does the message of judges make a difference?
