The book of Judges could easily be renamed "The Big Fail". God's people are given clear mandates from God regarding how to conduct themselves in their newly acquired promised land. There response to these directives is to compromise. Allow idol worshipping Canaanites to stay in their land and dwell among them. This, in fact, is NOT the big fail but it does lead to it. This semester we'll be looking at how their compromises led to their failures, how God helps them out of those failures (that's the HERO part) , and what we can learn from them to protect our own lives from destruction and instead live out life giving worship of the one true God.
