"First Rest—Then Victory definitely increases one's understanding of the meaning, message, and relevance of the book of Joshua. It is so practical that the reader will find it useful as a personal devotion, but above all, it makes the reader think. And it could be one of the things that helps the reader experience the "success" God promised to Joshua."
