This is a translation of the complete homilies of Origen of Alexandria on the the book of Joshua. With the saga of the Israelites entering and possessing their promised land, Origen unfolds the story of the Christian life from baptism to resurrection. He exhorts his hearers to persevere in their own struggles to overcome the enemies of their souls and obtain their own inheritence. As he exhorted, others wrote down his words, words he had asked the people to pray for and the Spirit to supply. Most of the original writings in Greek were lost during the centuries when Origen was offically defamed. What we have today is the Latin translation by Rufinus, the basis of the translations in this volume. In the introduction Bruce discusses and affirms the reliability of the Latin text, and briefly looks at Origen's minstry, his concept of the nature of Scripture and his method of interpretation.
