Description: The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible encourages readers to explore how the vital roots of the ancient Christian tradition inform and shape faithfulness today. In this addition to the series, two respected scholars offer a theological reading of Judges and Ruth. As with other volumes in the series, this commentary is designed to serve the church—providing a rich resource for preachers, teachers, students, and study groups—and to demonstrate the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of the Bible.
