Chapter 6 - Conquest

In chapter 5. God’s people, formerly powerless slaves, became a kingdom of priests in the desert. Now in chapter 6, Israel finally entered the Promised Land, the land of Canaan.

What do we do when God acts more like a tribal warlord than the God of unending love? “What are we supposed to do with a Bible like this? What are we supposed to do with a God like this?”
