Discover the secret Joshua gave the Israelites for prosperity and success.
The Israelites finally had land and the opportunity to start anew. Their leader, Joshua, spoke wisely about how to follow God’s law and how to be successful. Joshua 1:8 says, “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” The Joshua CodeTM is a challenge to keep the Word in our mouths through memorization and in our hearts through meditation “day and night."
The fifty-two chapters in this volume are designed to lead you on a yearlong journey by spending each week memorizing and meditating on one Scripture verse so that it becomes a living part of your very being. Topics include grace, temptation, the three levels of prayer, fruit of the spirit, and more. The outlines in each chapter can also be used by the busy pastor or Bible teacher for guiding their members. God’s Word is powerful and profitable when studied and applied by anyone, the young and the seasoned believer alike.
"You will both enjoy and profit from reading The Joshua Code. His emphasis upon the importance of Scripture memorization vibrates once more the lost chord of hiding God's Word in your heart." - Dr. John Edmund Haggai, Founder and CEO, Haggai Institute
“The Joshua Code literally cracks the code that every leader struggles with: In these uncertain times, with uncertain outcomes, how can a leader put first things first? The example of Joshua memorizing and meditating on God's Word moves us from success to significance. Most of all, the emphasis on Scripture memory fits in perfectly with our matrix at Student Leadership University that you will be the same person five years from now, except for the books you read, the people you meet, the places you go, and the things you memorize.” - Dr. Jay Strack, President & Founder, Student Leadership University
"The Joshua Code is impacting our whole church as we memorize the Scriptures together. Each week the Scripture verse appears in our announcements and on Sunday evenings the verse is recited as a group and the devotional thoughts are read then discussed. This is bringing us together as a family around the Word of God." - Dr. Thomas Sherwood, Long Falls Church, Carthage, New York
"Whether on the football field or the field of life you need a playbook. My friend, O.S. Hawkins' new book, The Joshua Code, is a great resource in understanding the 52 verses every believer should know. I read it regularly in my own devotions and enthusiastically recommend it to my family, friends and fans." - Roger Staubach, NFL Hall of Fame Quarterback

There's a reason that more than a million of his devotionals have been embraced by those who have discovered this insightful series.' Mike Huckabee, television commentator and former governor of Arkansas

'Whether on the football field or the field of life, you need a playbook. The entire Code series of devotionals is a great resource for my own spiritual growth.

'In my forty-five years in ministry, I have never seen a more desperate need for truly biblically wise counsel. Unfortunately, most of the books available are man-centered, which do not even provide temporary help. That is why I am so thankful that Dr. O. S. Hawkins penned the Code series. The questions that are asked in the Bible are the questions everyone is asking, and thank God the Code series gives us truly sustaining and uplifting answers. This book is a must for everyone. Read and reread it, and be eternally blessed.' Dr. Michael Youssef, senior pastor, Church of the Apostles, Atlanta, Georgia

This book gives a deeper personal understanding and meaning of key scripture verses in the Bible, which have helped me have more peace and joy in my walk.
So far I have purchased 3 copies of this book: two copies for gifts and one for myself. I will be purchasing others for gifts. This is a great book--well written and easy to understand. It is excellent to pick up for short periods of reading, as well as longer periods of meditation and study. Definitely worth the expenditure of time and money.
Wonderful encouragement to hide God's Word in our heart!
