Joshua: The Conquest of Canaan (3 Units)
Joshua had at least three purposes for writing about Israel’s conquest of the Promised Land:
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.
Ken Fleming has been an enthusiastic and passionate Bible teacher for more than fifty years. His service for Christ has led him to many parts of the globe, including South Africa, where he spent twenty-five years as a missionary among the Zulu people. From 1977 through 2002, Ken taught in the Bible and Missions programs at Emmaus Bible College in Dubuque, Iowa. Today he continues proclaiming the gospel and strengthening the church body through writing and preaching ministries.
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 conviced that this book was on target, the moment I read the introduction that tells of Joshua’s involvement in ministry, some 40 years earlier. lso, it is easy to read and understand. I am currently teaching directly from it. It’s a must have!!!”
