I just finished reading The Empty Men: The Heroic Tradition of Ancient Israel by Gregory Mobley. It’s a book that focuses in on the language, wording, and ritual details of three people from the book of Judges: Ehud, Gideon, and Samson.

I found much of the insight very helpful in understanding some strange parts of these little known and used stories.

Rating: 6 out of 10. Its biggest value is if one is doing a study on any of these three characters. It is more of a commentary than anything else, but one that’s actually interesting to read.
