As Pastor Bruce leads us through a sermon series on the book of Judges, we will take a different look into this same historical period.  While God’s people descended into disobedience, God was already at work restoring them.  He tells the story of this restoration through a humble, non-Israelite woman who experiences God’s grace and is then included in the royal linage of Israel’s kings.

As Pastor Bruce leads us through the Book of Judges, we see this phrase pop up again and again: Everyone did what was right in his own eyes. That sounds a lot like today, doesn’t it? In this book study we will look at the topic of truth and think about how to engage a culture that often rejects the very notion of anything being true. If you are interested in purchasing the book, you can find it locally at God’s Girls in North Hampton, NH or On-line at Amazon.
