The Book of Joshua: God, the Faithful Warrior is an 11-week series exploring the book of Joshua. A history from a time thousands of years ago, yet full of themes just as relevant today as they were then. A nation facing challenging times, a new leader struggling to face incredible obstacles, and a God who is both faithful and a warrior for His people. Ultimately, Joshua is a story of salvation and the perfect rest offered to all who trust in Christ.
