Reviews - What do customers think about The Book of Joshua (The New International Commentary on the Old Testament)?
Pastor in Texas Feb 2, 2005
A helpful overview of Joshua by a respected authority. Generally helpful on some troublesome passages with good exegesis. The only drawback was that it didn't really deal with some of the questions that I personally--and I presume other pastors--would have liked a broader treatment on. Woudstra does not have a fondness for higher criticism, a factor that too often pervades many commentaries on Joshua. His is a solid if not sterling commentary.
