Deserting The King


The book of Judges can pose many puzzles for readers today: who were the “judges”? Why was this book written, and how does it fit into the biblical narrative? And how can the story it tells–one of bloodshed, intrigue, and rejection of Yahweh’s authority–change our understanding of God today? Deserting the Crown guides readers through the difficulties that the book of Judges can pose for readers as it traces both the evil and redemption present in Israel’s approach to kingship–and, by extension, God. And while examining the book’s structure and key themes, author David Beldman draws in stories from his life and the world today, showing how this Old Testament book, in its darkness and heroism, gives us a lens to see God’s at work throughout history.
