In the absense of precise data, several suggestions have been made concerning authorship of the book of Judges. The most probable opinion is that Samuel, in addition to his office of prophet or seer, compiled the book. The time of writing may have been during his retirement from public life. The internal evidence inplies that the writer made use of written records left by previous judges, relative to the times and events of their respective governments.
