Joshua: A Devotional Exposition

by Cyril J. Barber
 

Most studies of the Book of Joshua fall into two well-defined categories. On the one hand we have the writings of those devout students of God's Word who build upon typology and explain the events of the book as symbols of subsequent greater events. Their approach is largely allegorical. Other scholars lay stress on the exegetical nuances of the text, the history

Overview

Most studies of the Book of Joshua fall into two well-defined categories. On the one hand we have the writings of those devout students of God's Word who build upon typology and explain the events of the book as symbols of subsequent greater events. Their approach is largely allegorical. Other scholars lay stress on the exegetical nuances of the text, the history and geography of the times, discount the miraculous, and provide a naturalistic interpretation of the momentous happenings that took place. They often fail to see the hand of God in the events described by the biblical writer.

Dr. Barber's treatment is different. He is conservative in his discussion of the text, and he paints a real-life picture of the vents as they transpired. He is also cognizant of the issues and shows God to be utterly faithful to His covenants. He does not gloss over the failures of Joshua and the Israelites, but finds in them warnings for believers today. Of particular importance is his discussion of the way to achieve day-to-day victory in the Christian life.

This is a practical, devotional book designed for use by lay people.
