Food for Thought in Joshua

Bite-sized Bible Study in the Old Testament

About the Book

The Old Testament book of Joshua is full of interesting characters, exciting battles, and life or death situations. Did you know that just one Israelite died in the battle for Jericho and why? And did you know that just one person from Jericho and her family were saved, and the apparent loophole in the Old Testament law that allowed for it? In Food for thought in Joshua you are given one Bible study for each chapter, allowing you to begin your own Bible study, prepare talks and sermons, or lead a study group. The content of the book is designed to lead to many other places in the Bible, both Old and New, that Illuminate the text and provide infinite avenues to discover the Old Testament for yourself.
