The Promise Keeping God

Joshua Series Introduction

The book of Joshua, and particularly the character of Joshua, has often been used as a source of inspiration for many different purposes. Sermons have been preached, and books have been written, on a wide range of topics all drawn from these 24 chapters. Leadership, strategy, progress, courage, conflict resolution — among many others, are some of the topics you’ll find addressed by inspiration from this book. But though his name is used as the title, this book isn’t really about Joshua. Nor is it particularly about leadership, or courage — this book, like every other in the Bible, is primarily about God. In particular, the dominant theme of Joshua is that of a God who is faithful to his own word, and that he is a God who saves!

As a way of introduction, the following clip was played just prior to the sermon starting. This clip was written and produced by the creative team from The Bible Project.
