Where Joshua told the story of God through the life of one person, Judges tells a dark and twisted story of God’s own special people choosing to be like the world and suffering the consequences. Judges is not just a collection of dark stories; it is a book of transition in the ongoing revelation of God, which will lead to their need for a king, who points to their ultimate King.
