Product Description

Now available based on the ESV (English Standard Version) of the Bible

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.

Endorsements

Having been frustrated by so many learned Old Testament commentaries, which may be full of good scholarship but offer little help to preachers, it is a joy to recommend such a fine book, which is so clearly the work of someone who is a very fine preacher himself. It is marked by careful exegesis, which reveals the main thrust of Joshua as a whole and each major section without getting lost in unnecessary details. All the big questions the preacher and congregation will ask are addressed and there are excellent pointers to application. It provides fuel, not only for our preaching, but for our hearts and lives.
-Vaughan Roberts,
Rector of St Ebbe's, Oxford, England

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. I praise God for David's ministry.
-Peter Adam,
Vicar Emeritus, St Jude's Church, Carlton, Australia

This is a fine addition to the Preaching the Word series. Jackman combines pastoral sensitivity, erudition, and an experienced feel for the text to give us a guide through the life-changing book of Joshua.
-Josh Moody,
College Church, Wheaton, Illinois

As a seasoned pastor and trainer of preachers, David Jackman has a long history of handling God's Word in ways that benefit the Church. This volume on Joshua only adds to his legacy of gospel usefulness. David's presentation of the text is clear and accessible. And the road he paves to Christ and the gospel can be trusted. Get it!
-David R. Helm,
Holy Trinity Church, Chicago
