The Anchor Yale Bible: Joshua

by ,

Yale University Press 2008

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Joshua began as a collaboration between G. Ernest Wright, the distinguished biblical scholar and archaeologist, and his student, Robert G. Boling. After Wright’s death, Robert Boling, who also did the translation and commentary for Judges, finished the task alone.

Boling’s extensive treatment includes not only an entire new translation of Joshua and a complete commentary on the text, but also comprehensive notes, numerous bibliographies, four pages of illustrations, and 11 maps especially commissioned for this volume.

In addition to exhaustive research and excellent scholarship, this volume also includes Ernest Wright’s 135-page introduction, completed just before his death, which provides not only an informed foreword to the text of Joshua but also a summary of his previous writings on Israel’s formative years.
