There is here much practical biblical instruction for the believer and the church. This is an excellent presentation. (Evangelical Times)
One of the reasons I enjoy Davis's exposition so much is that I feel confident that he has done his exegetical homework, and so is not just delivering blessed, unhistorical thoughts on the text. Yet at the same time, he applies the text so well. (Simon Gathercole ~ Director of Studies, Theology and Religious Studies, Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge University, Cambridge)
"The most practical expository work that this reviewer has ever encountered." (Southwestern Journal of Theology)
This was a very edifying and enjoyable Bible commentary through the book of Judges. The commentary divides Judges into three parts with a total of twenty one chapters. I think anyone who is studying the book of Judge will find this commentary as an indispensable resource. The great thing about the way the author writes is that it is accessible for preachers as well as the person in the pew. (The Domain for Truth blog)
"Dr. Davis has a great sense of fun. He must often have his class or his congregation in stitches!" (Christian Arena)
"an excellent... crisp, lively... exposition on Judges." (Bibliotheca Sacra)

The main strong point of this commentary is that it takes the fairly difficult book of Judges and shows how even the obscure stories are relevant to modern life. More than once I had an "ah-ha" moment while reading this commentary, and was grateful to Davis for making the text come alive. Judges is not an easy book to read in a Christ centered way, and Davis is a great help with this. Because it is a collection of sermonic material, it also helps with application, and provides illustrative material. This volume would be excellent for personal use, or for any lay leader in the church.
No commentary can accomplish everything, and because this is a lay level commentary, it has some omissions. It does not consider technical details, or matters of introduction. Also, because it seems to have come from sermons, there are occasional themes that are simply not dealt with. This is hardly much of a criticism, considering how much helpful material is in the book. But I have found it helpful to consult Davis together with one or two other commentaries to fill out the picture.
