The Book of Joshua is a historical narrative that records the words of Joshua and the Covenant made between God and the Jews concerning the Promised Land. The Book recounts the travels of the chosen people across the Jordon and the various wars that follow with the Canaanites in the south and King Hazor in the north. Joshua leads God's chosen over the Jordan, into battle at Jericho (where the Ark is held), and witnesses the miracle of God that keeps the sun high in the sky so that His people may conquer the Canaanites. God's faithfulness is shown, and Joshua's faith in God is likewise revealed. The chosen people are exhorted by Joshua...
...The Book begins by introducing Daniel and his three captive friends and shows their faithfulness to God by their refusal to partake of "the royal food" ("Book of Daniel"). The Book goes on to relate a dream of King Nebuchadnezzar and how only Daniel is able to interpret it, how Daniel's friends were thrown into a furnace after refusing to worship a false idol, how God preserved them, and how the King "issued a decree in favor of their God and promoted them to places of dignity" ("Book of Daniel"). The Book continues with another dream, another interpretation, Balthazar who sees the famous writing on the wall, and visions of Daniel, which are given from his first-person perspective.
