Changes & Challenges for a New Generation: The Book of Joshua

From the dynamics of leadership succession to the ethics of war and conquest, the Book of Joshua narrates the story of the Children of Israel becoming the People of Israel in a land of their own. Themes of leadership, covenant, and human relationships recur throughout the book as we learn how a new generation guided by new leadership navigates the novel challenges of realizing their Divine promises. The conquest and settlement of the Land of Israel consistently challenge the wholeness and holiness of the nation. Students of the Book of Joshua are often surprised to learn how relevant its ancient themes are to the dilemmas of our own contemporary times.
