Fall 2018 Book Study
 
 Crash Test Dummies by Talbot Davis
 
 

You’ve seen them, haven’t you? They ride in the front seats of expensive cars and drive headlong into a brick wall. And then they do it again. And again. They’re crash test dummies. Why do they keep doing the same dumb thing over and over again? Or maybe a better question is, why do we?

In this six-week study on the Book of Judges, author Talbot Davis explores the stories of the judges from the perspective of the Israelite’ repeated failure to be faithful to God alone. Through his creative, quirky angle on the book, Davis highlights how the Israelites in Judges made the same mistake of apostasy over and over again. Each time God delivered them, they eventually fell back into the predictable, tragic pattern.

As he explores each judge’s story, Davis invites readers to consider the shape that patterns of sin take in our lives, and how God seeks to free us from them and empower us for faithful living. Readers will come to know the Book of Judges and its central characters more deeply, and they will come to appreciate this biblical book as a source of wisdom for living well.
