Judges is out!

Folks, my latest commentary is out: Judges: A Theological Commentary for Preachers.

This follows the scheme of my earlier commentaries on Genesis, Mark, and Ephesians, and subscribes to the same hermeneutic that underlies those.

Check out the free chapter download here.


With Abraham Kuruvilla’s sensitive literary and theological reading of Judges … he shows preachers how to relate its message to the world in which we live and the alternative world Christians are called to represent. Given his clear focus on helping preachers, this is probably the first book anyone expounding the book of Judges for a class or a congregation should get.””

Gunther H. Knoedler Professor Emeritus of Old Testament
Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois

Based on solid exegesis of the original text, this commentary makes the literary form and message of the book of Judges accessible, and demonstrates in clear fashion how to preach the different sections of the book faithfully and effectively. Anyone who wants to preach the book of Judges will want to consult this fine volume.”

K. Lawson Younger, Jr.
Professor of Old Testament, Semitic Languages, and Ancient Near Eastern History
Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, Illinois

Preachers shy away from the Book of Judges. After all, it is smeared with blood and littered with dead bodies, making one wonder: What relevance does this book have for modern readers? Abraham Kuruvilla takes on the challenge of answering this question. … I heartily recommend this commentary.”

Robert B. Chisholm, Jr.
Chair and Senior Professor, Old Testament Studies
Dallas Theological Seminary, Dallas, Texas

With astute observations about the text that readily lend themselves to homiletical applications, and broad suggested preaching outlines that closely reflect the theology of the text, Kuruvilla’s commentary will prove to be a valuable resource for the expository teacher/preacher.”

    Congratulations on the release of the great commentary that you allowed me to use pre-pub!
    It was a great experience. I am going to be teaching the Book of James in a couple of weeks.
    Any recommendations for a good commentary on that one?

      Robert, all the best with your teaching endeavors. After Judges, James should be a walk in the park. (Or maybe not!)

    Congratulations Abe!
    Great job completing commentary/book number seven.
    You have been writing like a man on fire.
    May your passion stay strong.
