About this Series
Our major Old Testament preaching series in Judges is called "Faithful and Flawed" which represents the tension throughout the entire book. In some ways it is a very dark book. It begins with war and death (1:1) and ends in chaos – "in those days Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit" (21:25).
In between we will meet a series of leaders who are sometimes exemplars of faithfulness but more often embody the flawed human nature that bedevils us all. Throughout the troubling narrative there is an ever faithful God who continues to work with his people despite all their failings.

Tonight we are looking at the final installment of the Samson story. It involves the infamous Delilah and a wrecked temple. What do you make of Samson? A man of passion? A man of faith? A saviour of his people? A womaniser and a bully? Perhaps all of the above to some extent.
