The Church has a problem with Judges, it is so earthy, puzzling, primitive and violent - so much so that the Church can barely stomach it. It falls under the category 'embarrassing scripture'. Such an attitude is, of course, wrong so Ralph Davis here makes Judges digestible by analysing the major literary and theological themes discovered in each section, providing a 'theocentric' exposition.
Focus on the Bible commentaries are popular level commentaries especially useful for pastors and small group leaders. They are also useful for personal devotions and spiritual growth. The series holds to the inerrancy of scripture and the uniqueness of Christ in salvation.
"Dr. Davis has a great sense of fun. He must often have his class or his congregation in stitches!" - Christian Arena
One of the reasons I enjoy Davis's exposition so much is that I feel confident that he has done his exegetical homework, and so is not just delivering blessed, unhistorical thoughts on the text. Yet at the same time, he applies the text so well. - Simon Gathercole, Director of Studies, Theology and Religious Studies, Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge University, Cambridge
"...an excellent...crisp, lively...exposition on Judges. - Bibliotecha Sacra
"This was a very edifying and enjoyable Bible commentary through the book of Judges. The commentary divides Judges into three parts with a total of twenty one chapters. I think anyone who is studying the book of Judge will find this commentary as an indispensable resource. The great thing about the way the author writes is that it is accessible for preachers as well as the person in the pew." - The Domain for Truth blog
"There is here much practical biblical instruction for the believer and the church. This is an excellent presentation." - Evangelical Times
