A ground-breaking and authoritative study of this influential yet sometimes troubling biblical book.
Professor Auld considers the varied witnesses to its ancient text; the meaning of particular words or names; the connections between Joshua and other books of the Bible, especially Judges, Kings and Chronicles; and the history of the interpretation of Joshua from earliest to most recent times.
"No one working on the book of Joshua can afford to neglect this book, and the concluding essay entitled 'The History of Interpretation of the Book of Joshua' is a careful statement of what Joshua research is all about. A feast for Joshua scholars."--Internationale Zeitschriftenschau fur Bibelwissenschaft und Grenzgebiete
'Anyone who imagines that scholarship has finally unravelled the critical problems of the book of Joshua should be referred to these original and perceptive essays by Graeme Auld; challenging received opinion and setting a fresh agenda for the further study of this book.'--Professor Ernest Nicholson, Oriel College, Oxford
'There is much here to provoke thought and challenge the received 'wisdom' not least as to whether Joshua can be seen as forming an integral part of a 'Deuteronomistic history', and it is good to have these essays collectioned together in a single volume.'--Society for Old Testament Study Book List 1999
'This series will be a welcome forum for thoughtful debate, and could be important in giving appropriate reverence to the elders while advancing the serious discussion of issues on which the biblical studies now in vogue depend more than they may realise.'--Gerard J. Norton OP, University of Birmingham, Reviews in Religion and Theology
'Undoubtedly, this would make an excellent resource book in theological colleges and other academic institutions. It is a book which I shall certainly recommend to all kinds of students of the Hebrew Bible--they would certainly come away with something they had not thought about before; and they would learn how to read Joshua with an eye towards the larger biblical tradition.'--Dr Sue Gillingham, Worcester College Oxford, Church Times
'Auld's work is characterized by meticulous attention to the text, tight argumentation, and irenic engagement with scholarship. As such, the essays in this volume represent textual analysis at its best. As a whole, they not only provide models for how such work should be done, but also demonstrate the larger exegetical gains that accrue from rigorous study. As a compendium of exegetical paradigms, the book will be of particular interest to those seeking a fuller understanding of critical method, while the cumulative weight of the essays will certainly elicit a significant conversation on the larger issues they raise.'--Ashland Theological Journal, Vol. 32 (December 2000)
'This collection is useful for laying out the trajectory of thought of one of the leading scholars on Joshua.'
