Learn how victory through the work of the cross is foreshadowed in Gideon's story with a step-by-step process of how to approach the truth of the cross in our lives every day. Each step of Gideon's experiences and directions from God show amazing clarity of what the apostles and Jesus taught about how to gain victory in our lives as we face daily battles. The details of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, and how we benefit from them, for not only salvation but our everyday need for victory over sin, is stressed throughout the entire story of Gideon. This book even also delves into the downfall of Gideon's family after his death, when Abimelech rose and up and built the very things Gideon helped destroy -- Baal worship. See how Gideon's son paralleled the experiences of Gideon, but in a very evil and negative manner, showing how the enemy can mimic the work of God, but only come to doom and failure in the end. Gideon's story presents true lessons about how to grow in Christ and maintain that victory.
