Publisher's Description

In an age of fear and insecurity, in which ethnic

nationalism continues to give rise to conflict

and war, we dare not avoid critical engagement

with biblical texts that have been used to justify

colonialism, conquest, occupation, and ethnic

cleansing. Building on the idea of Scripture

as dialogue partner, Matties advocates for the

book of Joshua even as he engages in a difficult

conversation with it.

In his commentary, the 25th volume in

the Believers Church Bible Commentary

series, Matties calls for "an openness to the

unexpected" in the book of Joshua. He

suggests that reading Joshua carefully will open

windows into how and why we read Scripture

at all.
