In Joshua: The Challenge of the Promised Land, Michael Hattin brings to life the biblical Book of Joshua, highlighting how the many complex issues faced by the people as they fought to possess their new land mirror and shed light on today’s reality. Hattin approaches the text as literary narrative, considering it from the perspectives of rabbinic midrash, medieval commentary, and modern scholarship. Eloquently and perceptively, he draws the reader into one of the defining periods in Jewish history, in which the new nation strives to forge a collective identity in their homeland.

NOTE: This resource is written from an orthodox Jewish perspective. The reader should read with discernment. DPH believes that students of the scripture will benefit from the insights provided by Jewish writers even when those writers take positions that may be different than the Christian approach.
