Product description

Product Description

The Book of Joshua isn’t politically correct. Instead of universal tolerance, it sees God offering the Promised Land to a particular people, the Israelites, and commanding them to displace its sinful residents by force. Yahweh is portrayed as a Mighty Warrior who gives victory to Israel, as well as the King who demands our complete submission and obedience.
The book also introduces us to men and women of faith, who find strength in the Lord to step up to their place in history. There’s Rahab the prostitute, Caleb the old warrior, Othniel who conquers a city to win a bride, Acsah his wife who petitions her father for the deep wells their desert city will need, and Joshua himself, who learns that obedience God’s bizarre battle plan to breach Jericho’s walls brings about the city’s fall with little need to fight.
For Christian disciples, the book offers a number of important lessons, vividly portrayed in the scenes displayed before us: submission and obedience to God as Leader, God’s faithfulness to his promises, listening for God’s direction rather than doing what seems right in our own eyes, the unlimited power of the Almighty God, and a call to reject the false gods and values of our culture; and to rather serve God wholeheartedly, committed to using the weapons of spiritual warfare outlined in the New Testament. The book concludes with Joshua’s final challenge:
“Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve.... But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” (Joshua 24:15)
This book is intended for study as well as instruction, presented in eight lessons. It includes appendices that explore in detail the moral issues that underlie the Conquest of the Promised Land. Helpful thought and discussion questions make it useful for personal enrichment and by small groups and classes. Extensive research contained in the footnotes makes it a goldmine for teachers and a boon to preachers involved in sermon preparation.
