The Book of Joshua book.

According the author Woudstra, the central theme in Joshua, to which everything in the book has been made subordinate, is the fulfillment of God's promise to the patriarchs regarding the promised land. Subordinate themes include the parallels between Joshua and Moses; the tension between complete and incomplete fulfillment of God's promise regarding the land and "rest"; the participation of "all Israel"; the people's fear and God's reassurance; God's revelation; commemoration of the "giving" of the land; and the hope and joyful optimism fostered by God's everlasting faithfulness. To support his understanding of the book's central theme, Woudstra repeatedly emphasizes the nature of the Hebrew narrative. It is both proleptic, offering provisional summaries of events to be taken up later in considerable detail, and programmatic, indicating that the book was written close to actual events. Also essential to Woudstra's approach is his understanding of biblical historiography. Recognizing that Old Testament studies today are in a state of flux as never before, the author takes into account the various views represented by recent scholarship as well as Hebrew usage and text-critical concerns. The commentary is supplemented by an extensive bibliography and six maps depicting topographical features, tribal territories, and significant campaigns.

The author of the text presented some interesting positions; none of these were unexpected. The text was written from a very conservative point of view. After having read the text and having reflected upon what I've read, there was nothing new or interesting about the writing. It was not a bad approach to reviewing the Book of Joshua; it was one that left this reader with a sense of "Why did this author write this book." The age of the text could have had an influence upon the overall impressions from the text. Those having an interest in the structure, influences, and historical issues facing Joshua and his followers will not find this text very supportive.

M. H. Woudstra's commentary on Joshua in the NICOT commentary series is a good introductory commentary to the sixth book of the Bible. There are commentaries available that are more scholarly, but for a person seeking an overview of the book or a fairly brief description and interpretation of a particular passage, this commentary is clearly adequate. As with the other commentaries in the NICOT with which I am familiar the technical points of interpretation or textual issues are placed in footnotes, to which those interested can refer.

The commentary also has about 50 pages of introductory material, which includes (among other things) a discussion of the author and date, the unity of composition, the historical background, the theology, and the canonicity. While none of this is detailed, it does provide a helpful introduction to the book as a whole.

The commentary is written from a conservative theological perspective, as is typical of the NICOT as a whole.
