Authorship of the book of Judges is no easy question because no human author is identified internally in the book. No one is able to give 100 percent certainty on what human wrote the book of Judges.
Therefore, a fair first question is: why do we care who wrote it? The answer lies, in part at least, in recognizing that whom the author is (at least in function if not in name) might help in understanding why the book of Judges was written. When we discern the purpose behind the book, we should understand much better how to read and understand the book.
Join Mark Lanier in part two of Judges and see if we can determine who wrote Judges and what their purpose likely was.
