Tim Keller critically examines the troubling book of Judges and addresses your questions while devotionally pointing to the free grace of Jesus Christ.
More exciting than many of its Old Testament counterparts, the book of Judges sets before us persistent questions about God, Israel, and the problem of the human condition. These problems lie at the very heart of why many people find the God of the Bible so problematic in the contemporary world.
Issuing no apologies for Scripture, Tim Keller's Judges for You opens up and explains the book of Judges on its own terms while pointing readers to the redemption to be found in the true judge, Jesus Christ.

About the Series From beginning to end, each volume in the God's Word for You commentary series is designed with you in mind. The series is designed to meet the expectations of three very different types of use:
