Apollos Old Testament Commentary, 6
Description: The Bible is both a divine and a human book. It is the inspired word of God for his people, whether in biblical times or for the church today. It is also a fully human book, written by different people in a variety of cultural settings. Knowledge of biblical language and society is essential if the meaning of the human writer is to be grasped fully. The Apollos Old Testament Commentary aims to take with equal seriousness the divine and human aspects of Scripture. This volume on Joshua expounds the book in a scholarly manner accessible to non-experts, and shows the relevance of Joshua to modern readers.
