    Simply put I will never read the book of Judges the same way again and neither will you This seems like a bold statement but I believe the content of this book is worthy of such a claim For the past year or so I have been trying to focus on Biblical theology and learning the unfolding of redemptive history throughout the entire Bible Old and New Testaments Finding Jesus in the Old Testament is far than looking for forced types and obscure prophecies but it is about seeing a creation in desperate need of redemption It’s about seeing imperfect rulers pointing to the one whose shoulders one day all governments will rest It’s about seeing a sacrificial system that screams out the need for the one true sacrifice I could go on and on but in reality this commentary on Judges is a perfect example of seeing Christ in the Old Testament in least likely placed you’d expect to see HimOften when we look through the pages of Judges we focus on tales of people we should or should not emulate Be like this person but not so much this person Or perhaps as children we learned the heroic stories of men like Gideon and Samson but glazed over their sinful indiscretions In this book Tim Keller walks us through many of these Biblical accounts but with an eye to see man’s sinfulness God’s faithfulness and the need of redemption only found in Jesus This book is filled with the gospel I cannot tell you how much I appreciate this perspective It is a breath of fresh air The other highlight of this book is its devotional value I would recommend this book as a devotional tool to use with your daily reading It is incredibly easy to read and intensely practical Not only does Keller explain the text in a manner that is understandable but he does so in such a way as to touch your daily life This is far from a theological treatise for ivory tower types It’s theology for the working manI cannot recommend this book to you enough Go out and buy a copy today Warning you’ll need a highlighter an open heart a willingness to be challenged and some time set aside for thoughtful reflection to use the book most effectively Disclaimer This book was provided by the publisher for review I was under no obligation to offer a favorable review

    Tim Keller doing what he does best exalting ChristKeller does an excellent job of showing how Judges is ultimately pointing to our need for Christ not a book about emulating super heroes There are no misplaced or forced “Jesus jukes” here He remains faithful to the text and always connects it to Christ and to the church today showing how Judges is the most relevant book for our day and age In short Keller helps the modern OT illiterate church member read the Bible through new eyes; new Christological eyes Some of the details Keller draws attention to will make you never read the book the same He’s not devising a novel interpretive approach adding meaning to the text Rather he brings to light little details that have always been there that often getoverlooked by the modern reader He helps the reader see what the Author of Judges is actually saying His treatment of Samson’s story is simply outstanding Highly recommended for preaching Sunday school and small groups This is one of those books I wish I could make everyone in my church read because it would help them appreciate and read the OT

    Classic Keller great cultural analysis and application ingenious way of looking at things so as to make the reader really step back and think but fairly sparse exegesis and in depth theological interpretation This was a helpful book on some of the major themesapplications of Judges in relation to our modern age It would be most helpful for a general overview of the book andor a bible study though Dale Ralph Davis is a better option


  4. Michael Michael says:

    There were some really good parts in this lay level commentary and some other parts that fell short of the mark in my opinion It often seemed to me that Keller would be explaining why approaching a story in one way was to approach the story with modern sensibilities and then he would invariably seem to approach the same story from another direction that also seemed to be rife with modern sensibilities I'm glad I read it but I do feel like it went off the mark in several places

    One of the best books I have read to date Keller does a great job of revealing the gospel in the book of judges and leading you to a place of repentance and worship This book is essential for the modern church

    Keller continues to have an insight perspective into scriptures that I find impactful and valuable

    Judges is one of those books in the bible that can be difficult to read And even difficult to apply to your life However as the title indicates Judges is for the believer Just as Israel fell away from the Lord by worshipping God half way we as Christians can make God into an idol that is far removed from what the word of God says Because of that the Lord will force his hand on his people just as He did with Israel Keller walks you thru this study that is in context and also shows the heart of God's people God knows that whatever controls our heart is what we idolize and worship The main focus in Judges is the people did what was right in their own eyes and God's judgement throughout history is to give people over to the conseuences of the life they have chosen Because of this the Lord appointed Judges over Israel Keller also points to the cross and the work of Christ Judges is for you because it points you to the cross We also see the tension that we face today God's grace and God's judgement The only way God can love us both conditionally and unconditionally is at the cross Without the Gospel of Christ crucified we will always either complacently give in to sin or live under a burden of guilt and fear The cross is where we find the tension resolved The cross is where we find the freedom to accept ourselves without being proud and to challenge ourselves without being crushed kindle locat 304The judge that impacted me the most is was Gideon He started out in obedience however he had some hangups Do you ever find yourself wanting or desiring to be needed? It can be deadly and just as Gideon soon found out The book of Judges shows us that we are problem back then and today We cannot be our own solution Just as Israel did we need to search for the King and have him deal with our hearts The study has the old with the promise of the new With all the struggles we face with our heart and good intentions we can have hope that Christ work is done and all we have to do is surrender our rebel hearts Not as easy as it sounds however one of my favorite verses helps me in this every dayBe still and know that I am Godcomplimentary review copy was provided to me by Cross Focused Reviews A Service of Cross Focused Media LLC I was not reuired to write a positive review The opinions I have expressed are my own

    This book gives a precious explanation on the book of judges The author Tim Keller describes well how half hearted obidience failing to remember Him and serving idols prevent us from enjoying God's blessings and provoke His anger However through this book we are also reminded that the grace of God and God's forgiveness always remain even though we have been sinning and hurting Him constantly As the author also said His anger is not opposed to His love I feel blessed and will never see the story of judges the same way again

    Parts of the Bible can be difficult to understand but thankfully there are writers and scholars to help us find the answers to our uestions The book of Judges is such a book and Tim Keller has painstakenly taken the time to get into the meat of the book and explain it If you have wanted to get from your reading or study of the book of Judges this book will help get you through itJudges is full of stories of the Israelites sinning and rebelling against God then begging for forgiveness followed by that forgiveness The people want a physical leader but those leaders judges aren't always good and the prople fall into idolatry Many times this happened because of involvement with the people around them many times due to a failure of faith in their God The parallels with today's believers and the world are astounding and relevent Is the grass greener on the other side? Has God left us when we don't see Him working? Do we need to put someonesomething up to worship? God's Word was written for us to learn and grow and the Book of Judges is no exception Judges for You will give you answers to uestions you might have and will help you delve deeper into this interesting book of the Old TestamentTim Keller is a wonderful writer who has certainly done his preparation for this book He carefully explains the thoughts and events with clarity and wisdom making it possible for average Bible readers to get to the meat of this book I have really enjoyed it and look forward to reading of his work This book would make a wonderful devotional book book discussion choice and even a book for Sunday School groups to study I received my review copy from Cross Focused Reviews in exchange for an honest review
