'There is a point in grace as much above the ordinary Christian as the ordinary Christian is above the worldling,' said the nineteenth century Baptist preacher, Charles Haddon Spurgeon. His comments capture the heart cry of this series of studies in Joshua from the respected pen of Dr Colin Peckham. He wants us to see not merely Jericho but Jesus, not only the Land but supremely the Lord. I was humbled, challenged and refreshed by it. You will be too. --Dr Steve Brady, Principal, Moorlands College, and Trustee, Keswick Convention
No book of the Old Testament teaches more clearly the principles of victory in the midst of battle, and rest in the midst of struggle than the book of Joshua. From this background, Colin Peckham applies these truths magnificently to create an appetite for victorious living and to show the means of experiencing this through full surrender to Christ as Lord, and complete dependence on him as our strength. Here is the gospel for defeated and struggling Christians, a gospel that does not only get us out of the old life of slavery to leave us wandering in a wilderness of confusion, but brings us into the new life of a land 'flowing with milk and honey'--the fullness of Christ. --Dr Charles Price, The People's Church, Toronto, Canada
Dr Peckham has produced a great book which perfectly blends together doctrine, devotion and dedication. This is a book for our times for pastor and people alike--a book to be read and re-read. Our day has forgotten the vision of victory set forth in this book. Without such a vision the people will perish and a defeated church will never conquer the world, the flesh, or the devil. Here is a challenge for us to blow upon the gospel trumpets and shout, for the Lord has given us our cities which, like wicked Jericho, are shut up and need their walls of opposition and indifference to crumble before the God's victorious battle-cry. The book of Joshua is a book for today, and the message of this volume is timely and blessed. --Rev. Paul Bassett, Minister, Melbourne Hall Evangelical Free Church, Leicester, England
