Unusual Bible Interpretations: Judges


Available on backorder

Most people suppose that the book of Judges is filled with tales of pious leaders called judges who performed acts that protected the Israelites and helped form them into a praiseworthy nation. A close reading of the book shows that the early history of Israel was just the opposite.

By examining the biblical book of Judges with references to many classical, traditional, as well as modern scholarly sources, Dr. Israel Drazin reveals insights that many readers will consider unusual. His objective analysis of the book confronts challenging questions, such as:

  • What does the story of Deborah reveal about the Bible’s attitude to female leadership?
  • Why didn’t Jephthah annul his vow?
  • Was Samson’s act of martyrdom appropriate?

Always open-minded, Dr. Drazin reveals a perspective on Judges that will enlighten and astonish.

About the Author

Dr. Israel Drazin served for thirty-one years in the US military and attained the rank of Brigadier General. He has two Masters, in both psychology and Hebrew literature, a Ph.D. in Judaic Studies, and is an attorney and a rabbi. He developed the legal strategy that saved the military chaplaincy when its constitutionality was attacked in court, and he received the Legion of Merit for his service. Dr. Drazin is the author of twenty-five books, including a series of five volumes on the Aramaic translation of the Hebrew Bible, which he co-authored with Dr. Stanley M. Wagner, and a series of three books on the twelfth century philosopher Moses Maimonides, the latest being Maimonides: Reason Above All, published by Gefen Publishing House. His website is www.booksnthoughts.com.


The books by Israel Drazin are very informative and valuable for students of the Word who want to go a step further into Biblical interpretation. However, Dr. Drazin does not come from a perspective of inerrancy, and the dispensational student will reject some of his conclusions.
