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.
Dale Ralph Davis is Minister in Residence, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina. Prior to that he was pastor of Woodland Presbyterian Church, Hattiesburg, Mississippi and Professor of Old Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi.

There is here much practical biblical instruction for the believer and the church. This is an excellent presentation.
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.

"The most practical expository work that this reviewer has ever encountered."
Southwestern Journal of Theology
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.

"Dr. Davis has a great sense of fun. He must often have his class or his congregation in stitches!"
"an excellent... crisp, lively... exposition on Judges."
The trouble with this commentary is that after reading the passage I'm preparing I often find myself reading the next few chapters. This is exposition of the highest standard which is presented in a racy (in a good sense) and contemporary style.
