Joshua: The Apollos Old Testament Commentary

Adrianna Wright has sent along this very new volume for review- Joshua: The Apollos Old Testament Commentary, By Pekka Pitkänen. Before the author gets to the task of commentary proper, he investigates pressing matters such as an overview of the history of interpretation of Joshua and the Israelite conquest and settlement; the role of history and theology in the interpretation of the book; main outlines of the theology of Joshua in its ancient context; the problem of war, conquest and genocide in Joshua; Joshua and the justification for conquest and genocide; and Joshua, Israel and the Palestinians.

My review is available here.   I’ll let you read the whole thing there and just say here- WOW!
