Description: The acclaimed Old Testament Library provides fresh and authoritative treatments of important aspects of Old Testament study through commentaries and general studies. Its judicious commentaries explain in a highly readable format the most significant historical, linguistic, literary, and theological features of the biblical texts. Of no exception, Susan Niditch s commentary on the book of Judges pays careful attention to the literary and narrative techniques of the text and yields fresh readings of the book s difficult passages: stories of violence, ethnic conflict, and gender issues. Niditch aptly and richly conveys the theological impact and enduring significance of these stories.
