Yes, Dale Ralph Davis made me laugh out loud while studying Judges-which given the subject matter is quite a feat. Through it all he points us to the need for a savior, Israel’s need way back when and our need today. And to meet that need, God’s grace and mercy in His dealings with His fallen and sinful people. The work is authored by Dale Ralph Davis who previously was a professor of the Old Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary (RTS). This is an outstanding work that helps explain what is going on in the book of Judges.

The Church has a problem with Judges, it is so earthy, puzzling, primitive and violent - so much so that the Church can barely stomach it. It falls under the category 'embarrassing scripture'.

This book is an academic book but not written as an academic commentary. It is a very serious study of the book of Judges, not a devotional. Mr. Davis' writing is enjoyable, readable and even humorous at times as he helps us understand God's interaction with the nation of Isreal. Mr. Davis shows us the continuity of scripture. He helps educate us concerning Isreal's responses to what God had asked Isreal to do. The strange, repulsive and evil behavior of a nation who rejects God and his requirements for righteousness. Who will rescue us from such a body of death? God, such a gracious Saviour.

This commentary is an excellent reading commentary for devotional use, or for help in leading a Bible study on the book of Judges. This commentary is easy to read, avoids interacting with the Hebrew, is filled with illustrations, and makes the text practical. It reads as though it is a collection of slightly edited sermons from the book of Judges put together to form a commentary.

The main strong point of this commentary is that it takes the fairly difficult book of Judges and shows how even the obscure stories are relevant to modern life. More than once I had an "ah-ha" moment while reading this commentary, and was grateful to Davis for making the text come alive. Judges is not an easy book to read in a Christ centered way, and Davis is a great help with this. Because it is a collection of sermonic material, it also helps with application, and provides illustrative material. This volume would be excellent for personal use, or for any lay leader in the church.

No commentary can accomplish everything, and because this is a lay level commentary, it has some omissions. It does not consider technical details, or matters of introduction. Also, because it seems to have come from sermons, there are occasional themes that are simply not dealt with. This is hardly much of a criticism, considering how much helpful material is in the book. But I have found it helpful to consult Davis together with one or two other commentaries to fill out the picture.

I have repeatedly read that Dale Ralph Davis is the go-to commentator for any of the historical books. I had to find out for myself! When I decided to work through the book of Judges for my devotions, I knew that I wanted Dale Ralph Davis's book, Judges: Such a Great Salvation as my companion. It is part of the imminently practical series of commentaries published by Christian Focus titled "Focus on the Bible." These commentaries are light on academic and exegetical wordiness but heavy on practical and devotional meat. Judges fits well with the other commentaries in this series.

Pastor/Professor Davis dives headfirst into the book of Judges, never skirting the queasiness that 21st century Christians often develop when they read it. He shines the light on the sovereignty and grace of God even in the midst of the depravity of God's people. This commentary will aid you in understanding the text of Judges in a way that will equip you to worship the God who is displayed in it. It will not address minute disagreements in Judges. The book intends to help readers understand the message of the book so that they can come to worship the God whom it declares. I enthusiastically recommend it to you!

This book is the BEST and most accessible commentary I have read on any Old Testament book! The author's wry with and superb knowledge of scripture makes it both entertaining and very informative. It provides a down to earth examination of ancient history, emphasizing human failings contrasted with God's mercy and patience.

Davis doesn't go into long discussions about how and why Judges was written. He focuses on what the book has to say about human nature, about God's incredible mercy, about the curses of the covenant worked out in practice, and about the application of all these principles to the Church and to Christians. Very readable, and a wonderful introduction to what could otherwise be a depressing book, with its constant cycle of sin, (apparently superficial) repentance and restoration.

Dale Ralph Davis is an Old Testament Scholar who provides wonderful insights and brings the texts alive. His illustrations, and very 'readable styles,' will help Pastors, Sunday School Teachers and others who desire to dig deeper. Be sure to check out his other commentaries as well. As a pastor for 40 years, and a student of scripture for 46 years, I have found his commentaries to be the best!

Phobism
Great commentary! I love how he so astutely mocks moralism. Great linguistic insights and christological connections. If you want to really understand Judges in a biblical and systematical context then forget about the other commentaries.

Another excellent commentary from Dale Ralph Davis. I absolutely devour his books and consequently have tons of notes written all over the margins of my Bible. Great book from a great teacher--and it helps that he gets me laughing while he's teaching!
