Joshua had at least three purposes for writing about Israel’s conquest of the Promised Land:To document God’s faithfulness in fulfilling His covenant to give the Land of Canaan to His people.To encourage the Israelites to obey God by completing the conquest after his death.To vividly demonstrate God’s holy and righteous character.From our perspective as New Testament believers, the book of Joshua provides insights into obtaining and enjoying our spiritual inheritance in Christ. Just as the conquering Israelites needed excellent leadership, careful preparation, strict obedience, and focused commitment, so Christians also need these qualities today.Like the Israelites, we face spiritual battles that may be either won or lost. By following Christ, our Leader, we will both please God and know the contentment, peace, and joy that God has for us.
In his orderly and instructive style, Ken Fleming has blended Joshua’s account of this remarkable period in Israel’s history with practical challenges, encouragements, and warnings needed for us today.

Here's What People Are Saying!
“If you're interested in understanding the conquest of Canaan, the Old Testament, or the Middle East today, this is a good place to start. I was completely convinced that this book was on target, the moment I read the introduction that tells of Joshua's involvement in ministry, some 40 years earlier. Also, it is easy to read and understand. I am currently teaching directly from it. It's a must have!!!”
