Item Description...
Overview
To Christian readers Judges is interesting, sometimes inspiring, but also puzzling. What message should we take from it? How are we to understand the ambiguous spirituality of the judges themselves? What was God doing during this wayward period between Joshua and Samuel? With wit,insight and sensitivity to the narrator's art, Wilcock answers these and other questions. God himself is the Judge, he argues, who transcends the uncertain record of human judges. God is always ready to respond to those who call on him, he takes the initiative and uses raw human resources to preserve Israel from her enemies and shape the nation for his purpose. Michael Wilcock is former director of pastoral studies at Trinity College, Bristol, and is currently vicar of St. Nicholas' Church, Durham.

Publishers Description
The book of Judges bustles with colorful characters. Ehud, a left-handed political assassin who cleverly dispatches a corpulent king. Deborah, a bold prophet and matriarch of Israel who musters tribes to war. Samson, a Rambo-like warrior who dallies with women and annihilates Philistines in a temple of doom. To Christian readers Judges is interesting, sometimes inspiring, but also puzzling. What message should we take from it? How are we to understand the ambiguous spirituality of the judges themselves? What was God doing during this wayward period between Joshua and Samuel? With wit, insight and sensitivity to the narrator's art, Michael Wilcock answers these and other questions. God himself is the Judge, he argues, who transcends the uncertain record of human judges. He is the principal actor in this drama. Always ready to respond to those who call on him, he takes the initiative and uses raw human resources to preserve Israel from her enemies and shape the nation for his purpose. In exposing the twists and turns and nuances of this story, Wilcock sends us back to Judges with a renewed quest, not only to rediscover the story of God and Israel, but to find fresh perspective on the ways of God and his church in a post-Christian world.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wisdom and Insight Abounding  Jun 4, 2000
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.
 
Useful and level-headed  Apr 22, 2000
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.
 
Sage and spiritual  Mar 30, 2000
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."
