Unusual Bible Interpretations free pdf Most people expect to find information about Joshua in the biblical book bearing his name. They will be surprised to discover that the book reveals nothing about him personally and that he was unable to accomplish the mission that God had set for him. Readers will find that a careful, open-minded study of this biblical book reveals not only a fascinating history of the initial entry of the Israelite nation into Canaan, but a story that is radically different, even the opposite, from what people think it states. By examining the biblical book of Joshua with references to many classical, traditional, as well as modern scholarly sources, Dr Israel Drazin reveals insights that many readers will consider unusual. His objective analysis of the book confronts challenging questions, such as: How much of the land of Canaan was actually conquered in Joshuas time? When was the book of Joshua composed? What scribal errors does the book contain? If God assured Joshua of victory, why did Joshua use surprise tactics rather than direct frontal assaults? What does the book tell us of the tensions between the tribes of Judah and the tribes of Joseph? Is Shiloh, rather than Jerusalem, the place God chose for the centre of Israelite worship?
