Central to the Bible's history of the nation of Israel, the books of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth reveal how God used people with different backgrounds, personalities, strengths, and flaws to bring the tribes of Israel into the land of Canaan and lead them to victory over many opponents. By engaging in these studies you'll see how these people said yes to God and helped mold and shape their young nation through wild and desperate times so that one day they would become a blessing to every nation. The Understanding the Books of the Bible series enables groups to take a new approach to studying the Bible together. Instead of following artificial chapter and verse divisions, these Bible study guides lead groups through whole books following their natural outlines and flow. They pose engaging questions for discussion with personal applications all along the way, leading to a community Bible experience.
