Reviews

[The book's] strong attempt to weld three methodologies together is to be commended and copied. Its emphasis on attempts at delegitimization of Abimelech is welcome. Its search for an implied audience early in Israel's history joins the work of several of us in seeking a wholeness to Judges directed to the early monarchy. Showing how each method may point to this setting for the book is commendable...Welcome Gordon Oeste into the guild of Judges scholars by reading his book and providing helpful critique that will push the study of Judges further through use of every available methodology. * Review of Biblical Literature *
...a refreshing and valuable contribution to the study of the story of Abimelech. Indeed, the time may come when [Oeste]'s book will be counted among the seminal publications that paved the way toward recovering a measure of consistency in the political agenda of Judges. -- Serge Frolov, Southern Methodist University, USA * The Catholic Biblical Quarterly *
