Overview

History is the foundation upon which doctrine rests. Understanding the history of God’s people is essential to understanding the purposes of God and his saving grace. In The Lord’s Host: Lessons from the Book of Joshua, George William Butler shows readers how the providence of God for the Israelites enables us to understand our dependence on Christ. These “precepts embodied in practice” are compiled in a series of lectures that focus on enforcing the spiritual and practical lessons found in Joshua and the history behind the events themselves.

This volume is essential for students, scholars, pastors, historians, teachers of the Bible, and anyone else studying the book of Joshua. With Logos Bible Software, the volume is completely searchable—Scripture passages appear on mouse-over, linking to your favorite Bible translation—Greek, Latin, or English. Perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “courageous” or “land,” making the text more powerful and easier to access than ever before.
