The Book of Judges is a fascinating biblical text, best known for the tale of Samson and Delilah, but containing many other rich and colourful stories. This commentary examines how the book has been received and interpreted through the ages not only by scholars and theologians, but also by preachers, teachers, politicians, poets, essayists and artists. The commentary treats the text story by story, making it accessible to non-specialists and specialists alike. It shows how ideology and the social location of readers shape the Bible's reception. Predominant are women's stories, which have both inspired and offended readers for centuries: Deborah, Delilah, Jael, who slew Sisera, and Jephthah's daughter, sacrificed by her father. The reception of Judges discloses a long history of debate over the roles of women and the use of force, as well as Christian prejudice against Jews and Orientals. The stories also have provided doctrine for the faithful, character building for youth, subjects for artists, and lessons for life. Judges, in this commentary, offers a window onto the use of the Bible in the Western world.
