Item description for Joshua, Judges, and Ruth (Daily Study Bible Series) by A. Graeme Auld & John C. L. Gibson...
Overview The three books considered in this volume constitute the principal biblical witness to Israel's early history. According to A. Graeme Auld, "they tell the story of how under Joshua the land was first taken by Israel and then apportioned to her various tribes. They tell how after Joshua there was a long period of ups and downs; of religious apostasy within the community and repeated harassment from abroad answered by a series of divinely impelled 'Judges' or 'Deliverers.' They offer some samples of life in Israel, 'in the days when the Judges ruled' or 'when there was not yet a king in Israel.'"Carrying forward brilliantly the pattern established by Barclay's New Testament series, the Daily Study Bible has been extended to cover the entire Old Testament as well. Invaluable for individual devotional study, for group discussion, and for classroom use, the Daily Study Bible provides a useful, reliable, and eminently readable way to discover what the Scriptures were saying then and what God is saying today.

Reviews - What do customers think about Joshua, Judges, and Ruth (Daily Study Bible Series)?
A bit disappointed in the author. Jun 29, 2009
While there is quite a lot of interesting information and sometimes an interesting perspective because of the author's expertise in Hebrew, a lot of the time the commentary almost sounded like it was coming from a secular perspective. This surprised me because I did not think that about other authors in this series. However, I still found it very interesting.
