In this episode of Help Me Teach the Bible, I speak to Iain Duguid on the book of Judges. Duguid has been a professor of Old Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary since 2014, having taught previously at Grove City College, Westminster Seminary California, and RTS Jackson.

Duguid is the author of numerous commentaries and books, including volumes on Daniel and Esther and Ruth in the Reformed Expository Commentary series, The Song of Songs in the Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries, The NIV Application Commentary: Ezekiel, and Numbers: God’s Presence in the Wilderness in Crossway’s Preaching the Word series. He is working on a commentary on Judges that will be published by B&H.

In this episode, Duguid points out that most of us are familiar with a few of the stories from Judges but don’t have a sense of how they fit together. He helps us to see how the book of Judges can minister to people whose lives have been significantly affected by the darkness of this world and even darkness among God’s people, the church.
