Book Description

20 Nov 1992 The Bible Speaks Today
The book of Judges contains some of the most famous of the Bible's stories, as well as some of the least known. In them we find much that is attractive but perhaps more that is repulsive. They show us the deepest sin of humanity, but we see that sin in the light of God's abundant grace. Behind judges of Israel like Samson, Jephthah and Barak stands a Judge, discerning and deciding.

Format:Paperback
As with most Bible Speaks Today commentaries this is reasonably easy enough to read and it goes into enough detail if you are preparing sermons or leading Bible studies. I use this when leading Bible studies at the church I pastor when we went right through the book of Judges and I found it to be very useful. Judges is not an easy book for our modern sensibilities but Michael Wilcock is a great guide and this along with his commentary in the same series on Revelation is one of his best commentaries. As with all Bible Speaks Today commentaries this is reasonably priced and if you are doing preparation on a passage is well worth buying. It is also a useful book if you are aiming to just understand the book of Judges in your own Bible study. Probably worth another half star but the Amazon star rating system doesn't accommodate this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful and level-headed 21 April 2000
By Joseph W. Smith III - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I just finished teaching a two-year adult Sunday-school study of Judges, and I found this commentary extremely useful. Wilcock is able to think creatively about these age-old stories, and often brings a provocative, New Testament sensibility to his applications. He also has a clear, lucid and penetrating style that makes this book quite approachable, and not overly cerebral. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wisdom and Insight Abounding 3 Jun 2000
By C. C. Newton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Thanks, Joe Smith. I purchased this book on your recommendation above and have found it very helpful. The stories in Judges read like adventure stories. They are fun but you are tempted to consider them just a break from the serious work of the Lord's word. Wilcock is really helping me understand the spiritual meaning behind the stories - to see how they truly are examples of how God works our deliverance for all times and places. How God is faithful to His promises but you can't pin Him down as to how is is going to deliver. If you are interested in exploring Judges - a comparitively little-read work of the Old Testament, I also highly recommend this commentary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sage and spiritual 30 Mar 2000
By Joseph W. Smith III - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've just finished teaching a two-year adult Sunday school class in Judges, and Wilcock's book was extremely helpful. He takes a long-range spiritual view, often with a New Testament perspective, of this intricate and tricky Old Testament masterpiece. There were many times when I simply read aloud to my adult students lengthy paragraphs from Wilcock's book. Very level-headed, reverent, and insightful. Highly recommended for those who believe God's Word and wish to study it "with all their heart, soul, strength, and mind."
4.0 out of 5 stars Great book 7 Jan 2014
By Buck Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Sometimes a little to in depth but very Biblical and great views. Brings judges to a very real view and doesn't leave conservative theology. A more in depth commentary for sure. For an easier read with more application read Judges for you by Tim Keller.
4.0 out of 5 stars Concise and Insightful 18 Jan 2012
By Mitchell L. Landress - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very useful for the busy pastor who wants to remain faithful to sound biblical interpretation. Shows Christological fulfillemnt at times, but not always.
