Numbers-Joshua: The Tragedy of Fear and the Glory of Faith is a study of contrasts. Israels fear prevented them from entering the land God promised to give them, resulting in the story of wandering and death recorded in Numbers. In contrast, the books of Deuteronomy and Joshua record the preparation and triumph of faith as the people allowed God to win the Promised Land for them.
