The Conquest of Canaan is a ten-book series of the return of the Israelites to their ancestral homeland. After 400 years of slavery in Egypt and 40 years of nomadic lifestyle in the vast southern desert, the Israelites under the leadership of Moses are eager to return to Canaan, the land settled by their great ancestor Abraham, but now inhibited by various groups of corrupt and vicious nations. Spurred on by the promises of God, the Israelites begin to push northward towards Canaan, but are stopped by the warlike Amorites. On the eve of battle, though, the aging Moses gives leadership of the vast nation of Nomads to Joshua, as the first general of the sons of Jacob, now known as the twelve tribes of Israel. Joshua must now unite the tribes, prepare them to face ruthless foes, and lead them in battle against impossible odds. Much of the story is experiences through young Israelite warriors, Salmon, and Tola, who personally struggle with the modern vices of the people of Canaan. Joshua, however, will have his faith stretched to the limit and the will of the Israelites pushed to the brink when they finally face the key to the Conquest of Canaan: the indomitable fortress of Jericho.
The Battle with the Amorites
The Israelite conquest came at a time when Egyptian control of Canaan was weakened. The battle of the Amorites is the first of ten graphic novels that tell the story of Joshua, who became the new leader of the Israelites after the death of Moses. After the ambassadors of peace are killed by King Sihon, Rahab, a Midianite harlot, shares her eye witness account with Moses and Joshua, which leads to the first military campaign in the sparsely populated central highlands.
