Grasp something new! Joshua's Spiritual Warfare: Understanding the Chiasms of Joshua presents a fresh revelation of the book of Joshua. Based on Joshua's chiastic structure from a Christian perspective. Where most commentaries on Joshua clarify the facts, this book digs into the literary structure to reveal God's points of emphasis.

The result is a profound revelation. You will see both the facts regarding the invasion into the promised land and the spiritual issues that God emphasized to the Jewish people.

When God inspired the Bible, He used many literary techniques that add richness, meaning, and emphasis to its stories. One of the most intriguing of these techniques is the chiastic structure. The book of Joshua has an abundance of these chiasms. Joshua's Spiritual Warfare identifies 67 chiasm instances and then provides an understanding of what each is attempting to emphasize.

By looking at these literary techniques, Joshua's Spiritual Warfare reveals exciting insight into the adventurous conquest into the promised land. The result is a fresh understanding of the challenges that confronted Joshua, the spiritual warfare principles behind them, and the application for similar victory in your life.

Never heard of chiasms before? Some people call them chiasmus; others use terms such as inverted parallelism, concentric symmetry, or reverse symmetry. The multiple names are partially responsible for keeping this topic hidden.

The study of this approach has been largely confined to the halls of Christ-centered institutions of higher learning. Even then, while most professors are familiar with chiasms, many pastors have not heard of it. This book explains and then uses the chiastic structure of Joshua to reveal the profound beauty of these literary forms.

Unlike academic books that target a scholarly audience, Joshua's Spiritual Warfare makes chiasms understandable to a broad range of people by walking through the 24 chapters of Joshua. In addition to the chiasms, it develops and explains the many symbolic and illustrative pictures in the text such as its geography and its characters. These vivid lessons will help you understand the obstacles that were overcome.

A profound book.
