What's your favorite book of the bible, and why?
The book of Joshua is my favorite. Joshua had big shoes to fill. He had to cross a mighty river, defeat stronger armies, destroy cities while leading people who lacked experience and skills... all without Moses, his leader and mentor.
He remained submissive to God, learned to move ahead without Moses, and did whatever needed to do be done, regardless of the obstacles.
