Judges and Ruth, the fifth volume in the 'UnfoldingCovenant History' series, continues the exposition of Old Testament history from the viewpoint of God's covenant faithfulness toward his people in the old dispensation. Professor David J. Engelsma now becomes the author, intending to finish in this and succeeding volumes what Professor Homer C. Hoeksema began.
Part 1 traces the dark history of the time of the judges with its recurring themes of Israel's departure from Jehovah to serve heathen idols, God's chastisement of his people by delivering them to the persecution and dominance of their enemies, their crying to him for help in their distress, and the Lord's gracious deliverance of them by various judges. The conclusion of this downward line of the history of God's people illustrates the necessity of a theocratic king in Israel, as expressed in the words of Judges 21:25: 'In those days there was no king in Israel.'
Part 2 explains the familiar but amazing history of Ruth, which illustrates vividly the truth of God's sovereign redemption in the salvation of the Gentiles and the inclusion of Ruth into the line of the covenant so that she becomes the grandmother of King David, the savior of Israel, as the theocratic king and the type of Christ.
