Discover the secret Joshua gave the Israelites for prosperity and success.

The Israelites finally had land and the opportunity to start anew. Their leader, Joshua, spoke wisely about how to follow God’s law and how to be successful. Joshua 1:8 says, “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” The Joshua CodeTM is a challenge to keep the Word in our mouths through memorization and in our hearts through meditation “day and night."

The fifty-two chapters in this volume are designed to lead you on a yearlong journey by spending each week memorizing and meditating on one Scripture verse so that it becomes a living part of your very being. Topics include grace, temptation, the three levels of prayer, fruit of the spirit, and more. The outlines in each chapter can also be used by the busy pastor or Bible teacher for guiding their members. God’s Word is powerful and profitable when studied and applied by anyone, the young and the seasoned believer alike.

"You will both enjoy and profit from reading The Joshua Code. His emphasis upon the importance of Scripture memorization vibrates once more the lost chord of hiding God's Word in your heart." - Dr. John Edmund Haggai, Founder and CEO, Haggai Institute

The Joshua Code literally cracks the code that every leader struggles with: In these uncertain times, with uncertain outcomes, how can a leader put first things first? The example of Joshua memorizing and meditating on God's Word moves us from success to significance. Most of all, the emphasis on Scripture memory fits in perfectly with our matrix at Student Leadership University that you will be the same person five years from now, except for the books you read, the people you meet, the places you go, and the things you memorize.” - Dr. Jay Strack, President & Founder, Student Leadership University

"The Joshua Code is impacting our whole church as we memorize the Scriptures together. Each week the Scripture verse appears in our announcements and on Sunday evenings the verse is recited as a group and the devotional thoughts are read then discussed. This is bringing us together as a family around the Word of God." - Dr. Thomas Sherwood, Long Falls Church, Carthage, New York

"Whether on the football field or the field of life you need a playbook. My friend, O.S. Hawkins' new book, The Joshua Code, is a great resource in understanding the 52 verses every believer should know. I read it regularly in my own devotions and enthusiastically recommend it to my family, friends and fans." - Roger Staubach, NFL Hall of Fame Quarterback

IS IT POSSIBLE THAT GOOD THINGS CAN COME OUT OF OUR BROKEN DREAMS?

Worship leader and recording artist Laura Story’s life took an unexpected turn when her husband, Martin, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Their lives would never be the same. Yes, with God all things are possible. But the devastating news was that no cure existed to restore Martin’s short-term memory, eyesight, and other complications. The fairy-tale life Laura had dreamed of was no longer possible. And yet in struggling with God about how to live with broken dreams, Laura has found joy and a deeper intimacy with Jesus.

Laura helps us understand we aren’t the only ones whose lives have taken unexpected turns. She examines the brokenness of some of the heroes of our faith, and shows how despite their flaws and flawed stories, God was able to use them in extraordinary ways. And it was not because of their faith, but because of the faithfulness of their God. God may not fix everything. In fact, although your situation might not ever change or get better, with Jesus you can.

“Our family has been ministered to by her vulnerability and willingness to walk in the valley and still say ‘God, I Trust You.’”

— STEVEN CURTIS and MARY BETH CHAPMAN

Grammy Award-Winning Artist and New York Times Bestselling Author

“Laura is one of my heroes when it comes to trusting God. She’s joyful, genuine, and faithful even though her story includes messy chapters. ­This book will be on my nightstand for a long time!”

—LISA HARPER
