Judges: The Perils of Possession
Publisher Maggid Press
In Judges: The Perils of Possession, Rabbi Michael Hattin offers a highly readable introduction to the biblical book of Judges that combines imaginative sweep with analytic depth. Utilizing literary techniques, ancient and modern commentaries, as well as current academic research, Hattin draws us into the book’s epic accounts of mighty leaders and their exploits, stories that both shock and inspire. As each successive judge falls farther from the ideal of good governance, an urgent question takes shape: How can the downward spiral be halted?
