Conversations with Scripture : The Book of Judges
by Roy Heller




Overview -
-A fresh, accessible approach to the religious and spiritual significance of the story of Judges -- not as a series of heroic stories but as a cautionary tale about covenant, sin, and society. -The newest entry in the only Bible study series written from a uniquely Anglican perspective. -Designed for adult formation programs in parish group settings or for use by individuals. -Study and reflection questions included. Sunday School curriculum or an irredeemably violent book? Throughout its history Judges has both entertained and appalled readers-some read it as a series of simple stories about faithfulness and some as a brutal and bloodthirsty book. Heller explores how Judges can shape our understanding of our world, our relationships, and can provide a path to a deeper appreciation of the ways of God among people. Far from seeing the book as either simplistic or cruel, Heller allows this odd text to speak to us anew about God, sin, relationships, and justice.
