Is the Book of Joshua nothing more than a book of myths? Was it written nigh
a thousand years after the events it pretends to treat of? Had the 15th-century
BC Canaanite kings truly never heard of Joshua, and do they not mention him
or his people, or even the fall of Jericho in their surviving correspondence?
According to the critics, the answer to the first two of these questions is yes. The
answer to the third is no. So what is the poor Bible reader to do? And how is the
Bible-believing Christian supposed to cope with such scholarly assurances?
We shall see.
