Following closely on the heels of the Exodus story, the book of Joshua recounts the mighty acts of God as he fulfills his promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It is, quite profoundly, a testimony to God's awesome power and enduring faithfulness.
Written to aid pastors in their preaching and churches in their reading, this accessible commentary guides us through the history of Joshua's leadership in Israel and God's direction of his covenant people to their promised "rest" in the land of Canaan.
With warmth and wisdom, pastor David Jackman ultimately encourages us to trust God's promises more deeply and obey his commands more wholeheartedly - that we might fully enjoy all the blessings secured for us in and through our Joshua: Jesus Christ.

Here is another excellent commentary, which combines great insights of exegesis, theology, relevance, and pastoral application. Every page is enriched by David's extensive experience and wisdom in understanding and preaching the Bible. This commentary is ideal for those preparing to teach or preach the book of Joshua, as it is also invaluable for Christians who want to understand the book of Joshua and read it for personal encouragement.
