Together in the Land

A Reading of the Book of Joshua
  • By Gordon Mitchell
$39.95

The book of Joshua is well known for its tales of slaughter and destruction. This reading shows that ambiguity created by means of juxtaposing contrasting ideas is a feature of the compositional arrangement in Joshua. While there may be a dream land emptied of foreigners awaiting Israelite occupation, there is also a grudging acceptance of co-existence in the land with a certain class of foreigner represented by the exceptional outsiders such as Rahab and Gibeonites. Mitchell's conclusion is that such ways of dealing with reality were a feature of the disillusionment and hope of post-exilic Judaism.
