The book of Judges provides highlights from several hundred years of Jewish history in the land of Israel between the conquest of the land of Canaan and the time of the Monarchy. The narration picks up the story from the book of Joshua and concludes shortly before the life of the last prophet and judge, Samuel. The tribes by and large were left to fend for themselves against the Canaanites who were left in the land after the conquests of Joshua and from surrounding marauding nations. At different times, various regions were subjected to invasion and deprivation that was eventually broken by the leadership of one or more faithful Judges. These Judges were usually regional figures who provided military and administrative leadership over a part of the land of Israel during their lifetimes. Their exploits are often colourful, and the narrative vivid and exciting.
