Review: Joshua and the Flow of Biblical History


Joshua and the Flow of Biblical History
Joshua and the Flow of Biblical History by Francis A. Schaeffer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Schaeffer does not disappoint.

Better known for his apologetic works like The God Who is There, in this work the author traces the story of redemption in the book Joshua, connecting it to the big themes of Scripture. It is a wonderful example of how Scripture should be read. Not as an academic book to write a paper about, verse by verse. Not as a source of mere uplift and inspiration. But as one part of a bigger story, one chapter of a larger book, where we see both God's sovereign, covenant grace and our responsibilities to believe, obey and serve the Lord.

Get it and read it.
