About Volume 3

Volume 3 of the SDAIBC covers the first steps of the life of the people of Israel, from the miraculous conquest of the promised land up to the turbulent time of the Judges, with stories about the Moabite Ruth, the ancestor of David; and the ministry of Samuel, the priest, judge, and prophet who prepared the way for David’s kingdom.

Joshua
“The book of Joshua speaks about the covenant faithfulness of God, who keeps His promises and leads the Israelites into the promised land under the guidance of Joshua. It also addresses the challenges of establishing a society that pledges itself to live according to divinely inspired principles.”—Barna Magyarosi

Judges
“Judges presents a turbulent period in Israel’s history marked by cycles of rebellion, oppression, and deliverance. Heroic acts of charismatic judges are interwoven with tragedies of moral deterioration, apostasy, and violence. The book emphasizes a complex portrait of human nature and the consequences of turning away from divine guidance.”—Mathilde Frey

Ruth
“Faced with what is, from a human point of view, a hopeless situation, two women embark on a journey into the unknown. They are courageous and proactive. Their journey ultimately ends well, and both lay the foundation for a dynasty that will bring forth the Messiah.”—Daniela M. Gelbrich

1–2 Samuel
“The books of 1–2 Samuel provide spiritual insight into the historical developments in Israel from the birth of Samuel through the advent of the monarchy with Saul, culminating with the establishment of the kingdom of David. Simply as literature, these books are a high point in the culture of the ancient world. Yet, they are far more. Through exquisitely crafted plots, subtle characterization, and constant comparisons and contrasts, these memorable narratives instruct in the ways of the Lord.”—Laurence A. Turner
