The book of Judges powerfully demonstrates the chaos that can arise when sin reigns in people's hearts. In contrast, the book of Ruth offers a message of redemption and hope following disorder. Set in a time when everyone "did what was right in his own eyes,"? both books work together to highlight God's faithfulness in the midst of Israel's disobedience.
Exploring the stories of figures such as Gideon, Samson, Naomi and Ruth, this accessible commentary emphasises the countless ways God protects and preserves His people in the Bible. Experienced preacher Barry Webb explores important connections between Judges and Ruth, reminding us of God's promises to His people and offering practical applications for daily life - pointing us toward the hope of the coming King of kings, Jesus Christ.
"Barry Webb opens up the texts carefully and accessibly, and does so with the sensitivity of an experienced pastor. Such pastoral scholarship is powerful and edifying."? - Christopher Ash, Former Director of the PT Cornhill Training Course, The Proclamation Trust; Author, The Priority of Preaching
