Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Mayes presents this guide in three parts; “Chapter 1: The Book of Judges,” “Chapter 2: The Social Context of Events Related in Judges,” and “Chapter 3: Israel in the Period of the Judges.” The first chapter covers the deuteronimistic context, the structure, and the history of the origin of the book of Judges. The second chapter discusses the geo-historic setting, the social forms and the society of ancient Israel in the pre-monarchic era. The third chapter defines various aspects of the period of the Judges; the beginning and end-points of the era, Israel as a segmented society, pre-monarchic leadership and the place this period holds in the history of Israel.
