Joshua narrates Israel’s conquest and inheritance of the Promised Land in fulfillment of God's gracious plan. Joshua prefigures Christ as he faithfully leads God’s people, like the church militant, through battle into triumph.
This commentary explores the history, culture, archaeology, and theology of the book to deepen faith in the victorious Savior of all peoples. It focuses on the faithfulness of God and how He kept His covenant promises, which are fulfilled in Christ. Throughout the commentary, the author's intimate knowledge of the Holy Land and his experience as a missionary and pastor bring the biblical text to life.
