Listening closely to the text while interacting with the best scholarship, Robert B. Chisholm shows what the text meant for ancient Israel and what it means for us today. In addition to providing perceptive comments on the biblical text, he details a host of theological themes in both books. Discover in-depth treatments of motifs such as covenants and the sovereignty of God in Judges, and providence, redemption, loving-kindness, and Christological typology in Ruth.
