The 52 Greatest Stories of the Bible (Story #8): The Time of God’s Patience (Judges)

Judges isn’t “simply a cautionary tale about what happens to people when they divorce themselves from an absolute Source of absolute truth and simply do whatever is right in their own eyes. … The Bible is not written to tell us the stories of the people of God. Rather, the Bible is written primarily to tell us the story of the God of the people.” A key lesson emerging from Judges is that our God may be a jealous God, but He is also remarkably patient!1
