Joshua—what a book! It is a necessary bridge between the Law of Moses and the rest of Israel’s history, and it magnifies the faithfulness and power of God. Joshua is a very important book in the canon of Scripture, and this devotional commentary merits attention. It provides challenging and penetrating insights into Scripture. That in essence is its objective—to confront men and women with the necessity of integrity, purity and victory through obedience and faith.

If you are looking for a fast-moving, down-to-earth, and challenging insight into Joshua, then this is it. Colin Peckham presents a grasp of the book that is easy to take in—particularly the long historical chapters—and manages at the same time to show how the book’s message is just as vital for today as it has always been.
—Rev. Dr. A. M. Roger, Principal, Faith Mission Bible College, Edinburgh
An interesting combination of Bible reading and devotional. There are twenty-one chapters, seventeen of which deal with the text either as a full or part chapter of the book of Joshua. I wouldn’t normally sit and read a commentary for fun, but this one I found really interesting, insightful, and thought-provoking. And it is easy to read, too.
