Abstract:

Joshua walked onto the pages of history at a crucial moment. God had promised centuries earlier that Abraham's children would inhabit the land of Canaan. Subsequently, God had led Abraham's descendants out of Egypt with a mighty hand and had given them his law at Sinai. When Joshua assumed leadership, the people of God were standing on the east side of the Jordan River, ready to take the land. How did the people of God understand their relation to God? How did they conquer the promised land? What impact did they have on later generations? Dr. Schaefer expounds the book of Joshua, highlights its characters and events, points out how it links together the rest of Scripture and reveals the unchanging realities of God's ways with men. - Back cover.
