Please Note: This title can also be ordered with a companion test booklet (a study guide of multiple-choice questions for each chapter) at no additional charge.
In Joshua we find much to encourage the Christian to enjoy his blessings in Christ. Judges shows the failure of man before God. Ruth presents a lovely picture of the gospel.
The Bible is one book containing 66 books. Each of these books is connected with all the rest. You must know something about every book before you can really understand what God says about Himself in the Scripture.
God led His people Israel into the land of Canaan. At first they won victories but when they sinned their enemies won in the battle. In Joshua, Israel was winning battles most of the time. In Judges, Israel was losing. In Ruth, there was spiritual victory.
