Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Though relatively brief, Niditch's Judges commentary is a great resource for any biblical studies or intermediate Hebrew student. She draws upon her own work in the oral traditions of Israel. She uniquely translates Judges in poetic verse (as in the style of ancient epic) rather than in the usual prose. This allows the reader to appreciate the genre of Judges in an insightful way. However, scholars looking for a comprehensive study of Judges will find that this commentary only gives a brief overview of the many issues along with similarly brief solutions. This is more reflective of the state of Judges scholarship than on any negative aspect of Niditch's work. Because there is a lack of good commentaries on Judges (Boling's volume as the other), this work is still one of the best in the field.

The bible verses are images, not text, in a mixture of sizes. it's illegible. I'm returning it and buying paper.
