Series: Word Biblical Commentary
The Word Biblical Commentary delivers the best in biblical scholarship, from the leading scholars of our day who share a commitment to Scripture as divine revelation. This series emphasizes a thorough analysis of textual, linguistic, structural, and theological evidence. The result is judicious and balanced insight into the meanings of the text in the framework of biblical theology. These widely acclaimed commentaries serve as exceptional resources for the professional theologian and instructor, the seminary or university student, the working minister, and everyone concerned with building theological understanding from a solid base of biblical scholarship.
Trent C. Butler has a Ph.D. in biblical studies and linguistics from Vanderbilt University, has done further study at Heidelberg and Zurich, and has participated in the excavation of Beersheba. He served ten years on the faculty of the International Baptist Theological Seminary in Rüschilkon, Switzerland, and for twenty-two years as editor and editorial director for Holman Bible Publishers. Currently, he is a retired free-lance editor.
RICHARD HOLTClovis, NMAge: 45-54Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Among the best commentaries on JoshuaApril 11, 2011RICHARD HOLTClovis, NMAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 3Meets Expectations: 4Butler, a moderately conservative scholar has written one of the five best commentaries I've seen on Joshua (Hess, Howard, Woudstra, 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]. Butler provides detailed discussions of textual and grammatical issues. He also provides an interesting introduction and extensive bibliographies. He sees more editorial activity than most conservatives do (but less than most liberals). His suggestion that the book is intended to be a biography of Joshua as the leader of God's people, is interesting and helpful, but probably overstated.
