Together in the Land


JSOT Press 1993

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The book of Joshua is well known for its tales of slaughter and destruction. Together in the Land shows that ambiguity created by means of juxtaposing contrasting ideas is a feature of the compositional arrangement in Joshua. While there may be a dream land emptied of foreigners awaiting Israelite occupation, there is also a grudging acceptance of co-existence in the land with a certain class of foreigner represented by the exceptional outsiders such as Rahab and Gibeonites. Mitchell’s conclusion is that such ways of dealing with reality were a feature of the disillusionment and hope of post-exilic Judaism.

In the Logos edition of Together in the Land, you get easy access to Scripture texts and to a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Hovering over Scripture references links you instantly to the verse you’re looking for, and with Passage Guides, Word Studies, and a wealth of other tools from Logos, you can delve into God’s Word like never before!
