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.

It has as its object and purpose the making meaningful of the past for the present.” (Page 9)

“ or small groups of tribes rather than on Israel, and on the heroic exploits” (Page 19)

“The history of Israel in the period of the judges which is related there is an account with a clearly didactic purpose, or, rather, given the complexity of the book, a number of clearly didactic purposes.” (Page 10)

“The origin of the book of Judges is, therefore, an interpretative process in which the past is being continuously related to an ever-changing present.” (Page 10)
