In the Book of Judges the narrator presents an image of the good
parent YHWH whose enduring love and loyalty is offset by his
wayward child Israel who defaults on the relationship repeatedly.
Biblical scholars have largely concurred, demonstrating the many
faults of Israel while siding with YHWH's privileged viewpoint.
When object-relations theory (which examines how human beings
relate to each other) is applied to Judges, a different story
emerges. In its capacity to illuminate why and how relationships
can be intense, problematic, rewarding, and enduring,
object-relations theory reveals how both YHWH and Israel have
attachment needs that are played out vividly in the story world.
Deryn Guest reveals how its narrator engages in a variety of
psychological strategies to mask suppressed rage as he engages in
an intriguing but rather dysfunctional masochistic dance with a
dominant deity who has reputation needs.
