In this broad overview of the Old Testament History books (Joshua through Esther), we will explore these works together as part of God’s redemptive history. We shall see how the importance of history, the genre of narrative, and the sovereignty of God fit into our understanding of these books and our ability to teach and preach them. In-depth glances at the book of Judges will assist the endeavor of hearing God’s Word through the trials and experiences of His people.
