    My Thoughts About The Book:  For studying purposes this book is one ever scholar needs in their library.  As a new pastor this book is a treasure.  Since I was doing this for a book review I chose the flyover route for my first read because I wanted to know quickly how to use the book in its fullest capacity. All the arrows, side trips, and points of interest were a bit overwhelming at first until I buckled down and poured myself into the book.  Once I did I loved it!  I am doing a bible study in Joshua and have delved into both the scenic and direct routes.  I have found a plethora of material in them and they have really helped make the book of Joshua so much clearer.  The only negative I have for this book is the fact that the font is not large enough for me.  This book was fun!
    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a digital copy of these books from The Tyndale House Publishers Publicity Group. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
