We are in the midst of a Summer Series going through the book of Judges in the Bible. This Old Testament book can be a bit challenging, even offensive, to modern or post-modern sensibilities, and without a proper understanding of what the main issues are we can miss the point. At the same time Judges fits our present day culture very well, particularly as seen in our popular action movies, which are flooded with anti-hero types such as the old Clint Eastwood type movies, Ironman, and movies like the Green Lantern. read it as we go along this summer.
This morning our study again hits a famous Judge and that is Gideon who we will see next week as well. In this first look at Gideon's story we see that you can't serve two masters if you want to truly experience the grace, power and freedom that God is offering.
