The New International Commentary on the Old Testament is a conservative and scholarly treatment of the sciptures. This volume on Joshua by M.H. Woudstra begins with an introductory section which discusses the authorship, date, unity and theology of the book. The commentary is an in- depth analysis of the text based on linguistic and historical research. A good work for scholars.

Review 1 for The Book of Joshua: New International Commentary on the Old Testament [NICOT]
Woudstra, a conservative scholar has written one of the five best commentaries I've seen on Joshua (Hess, Howard, Butler, and Harris are the others). [I have not yet seen the commentaries by Hubbard or McConville & Williams, but based upon their previous work, I suspect their contributions will also be impressive]. Woudstra focuses on the final form of the text. He provides a perspective that accepts the historical claims of the book in faith, even when the incomplete archaeological evidence might be lacking. This is a well thought out, well written commentary.
