    Judges and Ruth

    Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries

    by Mary J. Evans

    The book of Judges presents Israel’s need for deliverance and God’s use of flawed leaders to guide his chosen people through a dark period of their history. The book of Ruth tells a smaller story within this narrative, showing God quietly at work in the lives of a few individuals. This replacement Tyndale commentary places each book in its historical and canonical context, examines key theological themes, and addresses issues facing readers today.

    Apollos Old Testament Commentary Series

    by L. Daniel Hawk
    Edited by David W. Baker and Gordon J. Wenham

    L. Daniel Hawk undertakes a detailed narrative analysis of Ruth that goes beyond the description of its content and stylistic features to illumine its deep structure and use of metaphor. Informed by contemporary studies on ethnicity, he discovers a work of remarkable sophistication that employs a story of intermarriage to address opposing ideas of Israelite identity.
