Joshua: All God's Good Promises leads through a detailed study of this Old Testament book about God's unfailing promises to his people. Each lesson has five days of questions (along with helpful comments and context) guide in a process of careful examination and application of the biblical text. Close attention is given to the shape and development of the narrative—as Joshua leads across the Jordan, through the conquest of the land, and into the settled rest of the inheritance promised them. The book itself is the focus of study, although the context of Pentateuch law and the New Testament's ultimate fulfillment in Jesus are made clear.
The book of Joshua offers adventure, great stories, vivid characters, and—above all—an amazing account of the way God fulfills his promises to his people. Joshua is not bare history; it is history with a point—and the point is that God's Word is true—always, completely, without fail. Kathleen Nielson challenges us to live according to that Word. She reminds us that God's promises are just as good and true for God's people today as they were in Joshua's day—and they are now completed and fulfilled in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
