ADU-GYAMFI, Yaw. Prevention of civil war in Joshua 22: Guidelines for African ethnic groups. Old testam. essays [online]. 2013, vol.26, n.2, pp.247-262. ISSN 2312-3621.

"There Are Two Sides to Every Story." Joshua 22 shows that civil wars can be avoided if proper measures are taken. The Cisjordanian tribes resorted to dialogue to prevent what could have been a bloody civil war. Their willingness to move along the path of patience brought about peace and joy. African ethnic groups can prevent civil wars if they learn the lesson of managing allegations the proper way through representation, dialogue and trust.
