The book of Joshua is an epic. Conquest, battles, scandal, tribalism, deceit, land registration and farewell speeches all make up this remarkable narrative. Some of the episodes are well known, other sections are largely passed over. However behind all the twists and turns, highs and lows is the God who makes and keeps promises. The book of Joshua is profoundly relevant for today and needs to be declared faithfully in its entirety. To be repeatedly reminded through the pages of Joshua that God is faithful to his promises and sovereign over his people, guiding them by his powerful word to his promised rest, is truth we must never tire of hearing. The book of Joshua has also been a battlefield on which the Christian faith and particularly the Old Testament has been attacked by new atheism, therefore digging deep into Joshua will strengthen and resource people to stand firm amidst such opposition.


Teaching Joshua is a great addition to the growing ‘Teaching the Bible’ series. Doug Johnson has done a brilliant job of both guiding the reader towards the main thrust of each passage whilst not overlooking the detail or the various complexities. Teaching Joshua will be a great aid to those who have the privilege and the joy of preaching or teaching this particular book. Whether you are a small group leader, preacher, youth worker or someone who simply wants help with their personal Bible study, this book will help you to understand and communicate the message of Joshua.

This commentary on Joshua by Doug Johnson makes me want to preach on this book of the Bible. It is a perfect preaching and teaching tool for ministers and bible study leaders. His handling of the text is matched by his application of the text to give us an excellent commentary on a book of the Bible that reveals the God who makes and keeps promises.

In keeping with this excellent series, Doug Johnson ticks all the boxes of the most helpful Bible teaching aids; attention to the details of the text, careful concern for the context and a clear sight of Christ. He is especially good at retrieving the so called ‘difficulties’ for the teacher (the lists of lists and the bloodshed) from any sense of apology and showing how they fit with the faithfulness of God and the purposes of the book. With its clear headed sanity, God–centred focus and nourishment for the Christian believer, this is an essential tool for any teaching on Joshua.
