For centuries a book of high significance, Joshua has in recent times experienced some doubts about its historicity. But as Stephen Lennox clearly shows in this latest of New Beacon Bible Commentaries, Joshua is reliable historically when seen through the proper ancient lenses. Unlike modern historians, who seek to relay detailed accounts of events with exact times and places, ancient historians sought to persuade others through their narration of the past. This is the case with Joshua. Here is a book whose main purpose is to convince its readers that God is a God who keeps his promises. Within its pages God is depicted as the hero, the One who fulfills his word to give his people the land of Canaan.
With scholarly precision Dr. Lennox s commentary not only brings to light the true nature and purpose of Joshua but also presents an accurate and inspiring portrait of its timeless message. Here again is a valuable and essential tool for the study of Scripture. This is a commentary that belongs on every Bible student s bookshelf.
