I am reviewing a copy of The Lost World of the Israelite Conquest through Intervarsity Press and Netgalley:
This book brings up the controversial topic of Spiritual Warfare, along with the ethical discussions it brings up. The author goes on to point out that in order to better understand we need to adjust our expectations of what the Bible is.
The author goes on to point out that the Bible teaches clearly and consistently that affliction by God cannot Automatically be attributed to wrongdoing on the part of the victim.
The author points out that the ancient laws and codes such as Leviticus 18-20 are not a list of rules to be obeyed, and we are reminded too that Holiness is a status granted by God, not one earned through good works.
I give The Lost World of the Israelites Conquest five out of five stars.
