Item description for Possessing the Land by Gordon Lang...
Overview What do the names Jericho, Gilgal, Ai, or Gibeon have to do with our lives in this modern age? Wasn't "crossing the Jordan" just an act of an ancient people who were intent on establishing their God-given claim to the Promised Land? What possible value could come of investigating the treachery of the Gibeonites - and who were they, anyway? These and similar questions are what this book seeks to answer. Possessing the Land is an investigative study of the Old Testament book of Joshua. It began as a simple home Bible study, but as I studied, it became apparent that God was setting out a battle plan not only for His original chosen people, but also for every modern pilgrim and sojourner in Christ. This book examines the experiences of the original people of God as they went about taking possession of the land that God had promised them, and attempts to draw parallels between their journey in a physical sense and ours in the spiritual realm. Numerous references are made to the real-life battles that face every Christian, not only in the variety of circumstances, but also in the strategy needed to be victorious over those circumstances. We desire to be able to join God's chosen people in their victories, learn from their defeats, and ultimately, like them, to enter into the fullness of all that God has prepared for us.
