This exposition is rooted first in a thorough analysis of the Hebrew text, employing helpful insights from archaeology and linguistics, and second in the major theological and literary themes discovered in each section. Finally the author brings the fragments together in an expository treatment 'that is not ashamed to stoop to the level of application.'
... The blurb on the back cover is on the point: 'Readable, Reliable, Relevant', and I wish I could have thought of those words first to describe this book.
"A happy blend of exegetical and historical study on the one hand, and homiletical treatment and application on the other. Ideas pop out everywhere, even in the most unlikely places. New insights abound. No one who reads this book will ever find Joshua dull and tedious again."
One of the reasons I enjoy Davis's exposition so much is that I feel confident that he has done his exegetical homework, and so is not just delivering blessed, unhistorical thoughts on the text. Yet at the same time, he applies the text so well.

What a great book... not only faithful to the text but also full of great illustrations, practical challenges and conetmporary language. This is a great addition to any library!
Pastor Dave5 Stars Out Of 5Joshua: No Falling WordsNovember 29, 2016Pastor DaveQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you plan to preach or teach through Joshua, make sure and purchase this book by Dale Davis right off the bat. It is a great companion volume to David Howard's commentary in the NAC series along with M.H. Woudstra's commentary in the NICOT series. Like all of Davis' other OT commentaries, it is filled with solid exegesis and practical applications--plus his witty, southern writing style makes them a real joy to read. I have preached through I,II Samuel, I,II Kings, and Joshua, and each one of his commentaries has been incredibly helpful. Every conservative pastor and Bible teacher will benefit from Davis' works.
