With Moses dead, Israel stands on the threshold of the Promised Land, looking to Joshua for leadership. Join Logos Bible Study as Dr. Bill Creasy takes us across the Jordan River and into the land of “milk and honey” in a brutal conquest - a campaign of extermination that raises profound moral and ethical questions in its day, as well as in ours.
Dr. Bill Creasy of Logos Bible Study uses a literary, historical approach to examine and enliven the bible for modern listeners. Dr. Creasy draws on his studies, travels, and personal anecdotes to depict a vivid picture of the works of scripture. Somewhere between a sermon and a college lecture, he delivers these audiobooks with authority but a pleasantly friendly voice and a touch of fun, using contemporary references.
In this lesson, Dr. Creasy discusses the hardships that Joshua overcomes in leading the Israelites into Canaan and conquering Jericho in the Book of Joshua. As Dr. Creasy puts it, there were no satellites for intel so they had to figure out other forms of reconnaissance.

Excellent Bible Study
I also posted this on Amazon.com. This series contains the audio from class lectures by Dr. Bill Creasy.
Dr. Creasy covers each book verse-by-verse, providing context to the material by explaining other passages in the Bible that may relate to a passage under study, with descriptions of corresponding historical events and the geography and their relationship to the passage, as well as anecdotes from his travels or study. I find it extremely helpful to study the Bible in context with geography and history.
As explained in the opening lesson on Genesis, this study starts with Genesis in the Old Testament, then moves to Matthew in the New Testament, then Exodus and Leviticus in the Old Testament, then back to Mark in the New Testament, and so on. Dr. Creasy does this because 1) if covered in weekly segments, as done in his class, it would be in year 5 before he got to Matthew, and 2) to help show the relationship between Old Testament and New Testament.
According to the syllabus I received from Dr. Creasy (he sometimes deviates from this in class), Joshua is the tenth in the Logos Bible Study series, preceded by John and followed by Judges. Joshua has 24 chapters, and the study is comprised of 4 lessons. Total time - 3 hours, 16 minutes.

A bit repetitive from chapter to chapter
the topic was interesting & the presenter was very good but about 20% of each subsequent chapter was devoted to rehashing what was presented in the previous chapter - was often tempted to just fast-forward ahead .

Easy work of a tough book
It's not an easy job to take people down the bloody book of Joshua and successfully out the other side, but Dr. Creasy did it. As always he brings in historical and scriptural context to help you better understand the book. He also brings in humor and modern day analogies.

By giving cultural and historical context Creasy gives the characters life and brings you along as an observer to the story.
Referencing related scriptural texts provides evidence to support that scripture is a unified text.

Dr Creasy's teaching on Joshua
I accidentally found Dr C's teaching as I randomly (or so I thought) looked for some insightful and in depth teaching on scripture. After listening to Dr C teach from the Bible in one yr I was amazed and blown away and am going through every single lesson by Dr C on audible.
Dr creasy may never see this comment but thank you !!!! You have helped deepen my faith with solid exposition and Spirit filled teaching and I'm am super grateful!
