And Ruth, because it demonstrates the far-reaching impact of a righteous character. K. Lawson Younger Jr. shares literary perspectives on the books of Judges and Ruth that reveal ageless truths for our contemporary lives.

Younger’s commentary is a reliable resource for readers seeking an introduction to the original meaning and contemporary significance Joshua. Longman notes that while this series usually majors in contemporary significance, this volume equally considers the text’s original meaning. [Full Review]
Lawson Younger’s NIVAC commentary is time-tested and has proved to be exceptionally useful in Judges study, so much so that a revised edition was released just last year (2020). Younger draws on a careful reading of the biblical text alongside his extensive ancient Near Eastern expertise to help students of Judges to read it in its original context, with all of its depth, color, and impact. His applications are timely and pastoral. [Full Review]
