The Author Of This Book:
The book of Joshua is God’s protection demonstrated. Often as Christians we say if God is for us, who can stand against us. Well the book of Joshua demonstrates how God will work to bring His people victory against any foe no matter how large and daunting it may be. This historical account of not only God’s love shown through His protection for His people and honoring His problem to them, but it should give every believer strength to know that no matter how enormous the problem, sin, stronghold, or spiritual attack is in our lives; God will always keep His Promises to us as found in His Word and He is not fighting side by side with us but He is fighting for us to give us the victory no matter what Satan brings against us.
