Abstract

Prior’s entry on Joshua provides some useful reflection questions for discussion, raising important issues about militancy in the bible, and how those questions must be confronted in this age of terrorism and economic and political oppression. Prior also raises questions of the place of women in this book where male soldiers are the chief actors.
