Reviews - What do customers think about Joshua (Otl (Old Testament Library)?
A good, solid piece of scholarship Jul 12, 2001
As one would expect from both Nelson and the OTL series, this commentary presents the results of a serious engagement with the text and context of Joshua in a lucid, readable, and not-too-lengthy format. Particularly commendable is the careful discussion and presentation of the text-critical issues relevant to the book. A good addition to the library of any scholar or scholastically-inclined pastor.
