Item description for Hearts of Iron, Feet of Clay: Practical and Contemporary Lessons from the Book of Judges by Gary Inrig...
Overview If ever a verse of the Bible has the ring of the 21st century, it is the motto of the times of the judges of ancient Israel: "Everyone did what was right in how own eyes." When everyone around us is doing right in his own eyes, how does the Christian keep on track, doing what is right in the Lord's eyes? Solid answers to that question are found in the Old Testament book of Judges--a book written about another time or moral and spiritual anarchy. God has something very practical and contemporary to say to us through the book of Judges. Through it you will discover the great principles God reveals about His work in His people--and what it means to live a powerful life in the middle of a society that is increasingly hostile to the disciples of the Lord Jesus.
Popular author Gary Inrig brings you one of the most insightful and complete examinations of the book of Judges. This often-overlooked book of the Bible is full of cultural imagery and unexplained characters, but Inrig helps to bring it up-to-date and make it relevant for today's world. You'll find yourself identifying again and again with these biblical characters as this ancient text comes to life!

Reviews - What do customers think about Hearts of Iron, Feet of Clay: Practical and Contemporary Lessons from the Book of Judges?
Excellent Book May 14, 2007
This is as good a commentary on the practical applications of the book of Judges as I have read. It takes the book of Judges from realm of Biblical history and presents it as a book that is totally relevant to today's Christian. Inrig has the ability to speak volumes with few words and he writes in a beautifully simple and eloquent style.
Insight and application Nov 20, 2001
This book is full of great insights and practical application. This relevant commentary makes the book of Judges come alive! I found the explanation of Gideon's fleece most helpful.
God's Grace Seen in the Book of Judges Sep 28, 1998
I learned all the stories of Judges as a child, but I realize now that I missed all the application and meaning God has for me. Inrig does an excellent job of bring the stories of the Judges to life, of showing how applicable they are to life in the 90's, and of revealing the truths God has for us today.
