This paper examines the Book of Joshua as it appears in the Old Testament. It first examines the book's canonical context and the confusion often connected to the book, since it contains the end of the history depicted in Deuteronomy, while the beginning of another era is contained about halfway through the book. The paper then examines the contribution of the Book of Joshua in ancient and contemporary times. Finally, the paper looks at this text can be used in a religious educational setting to preach about faith and responsibilities.

From the Paper:

"Other critics however justify the placement of Joshua in the Hebrew text by citing various probable reasons for this (Malick, 1996). Joshua for example acted as a prophet, while the book also depicts the truths given to the people by the prophets. Furthermore the label of "prophet" emphasizes the theological rather than concretely historical nature of the book. It appears that the book is indeed intended to teach religious truths rather than historical truths, as historical research suggests various inaccuracies in the events depicted in Joshua (Gray, 1986, p. 9)."
