Description of Joshua by James Montgomery Boice
"The secret of success is to know God's Word, speak about it, meditate on it, and then, above all, do it. In God's world there is no substitute for full obedience." Joshua was a soldier. According to James Montgomery Boice, he was "one of the most extraordinary military commanders of all time." But what sets Joshua apart from his predecessors and successors, says Boice, was his obedience to the Word of God. This insightful commentary follows a chosen commander whose obedience successfully brought him through the Jewish conquest of Canaan. Chapter by chapter and verse by verse, Boice explores the entire book of Joshua, from Joshua's military commissioning to the crossing of the Jordan River, from the Israelite victory at Jericho to the division of Canaan among the twelve tribes, which set the stage for God's people to prosper forever in obedience to him. James Montgomery Boice (1938-2000) was senior pastor of Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was also president and cofounder of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, the parent organization of The Bible Study Hour, on which Boice was a speaker for more than thirty years.
