The writing of The Women of Judges Musings for Meditation and Application was written, as were my previous two books, through a request from Dr. Arthur Crisco. Art is the volunteer editor for a Christian missionary organization. The original request was for leaflets on eleven women in The Book of Judges in the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament). Then he suggested the material be put into a book. I edited the leaflet material and added material on each. I included a chapter on the abducted women found in the last two chapters of Judges. I also added Naomi, Ruth and Hannah who lived in the time of the Judges.
The other two books mentioned above: The Jesus Story, Musings for Meditation and Application and The Paul Story, Musings for Meditation and Application. Both are available from ParsonsPorchBooks.com or through your favorite book store.
