Books of the Bible


The book of Joshua is one of the historical books in the Old Testament. It covers the latter part of the life of Joshua, the protégé and successor of Moses.

The time frame covered is from the death of Moses to the conquest and allocation of the land God gave his people, the 12 tribes of Israel.

Historically, the book of Joshua occurs immediately after Deuteronomy. The book of Judges closely follows it.

Insight into Joshua’s early life is found in Exodus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.

A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 1,000-page website to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and many books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
