Joshua is the sixth book of the Old Testament, immediately following the Pentateuch.

It describes the Israelite conquest of Canaan by its eponymous hero.

It is considered one the more troubling books of the Bible due to its unambiguous exhortations to genocide - for example, after Joshua has massacred the entire population of Jericho (Joshua 6), God instructs him to 'Do to Ai what you did to Jericho' (Joshua 8:1).
