    Butler, 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.
