The Book of Joshua contains some of the best known characters and images in the Bible, such as Joshua himself, Rahab, the Walls of Jericho that “came tumblin’ down,” and the miracle of the sun standing still at Gibeon, each of them with a long and fascinating reception history, each of them used in diverse causes and interpreted from different vantage points down the centuries. This volume in the Blackwell Bible Commentary Series will emphasize these elements in Joshua, as well as their broader textual surroundings, thereby helping the reader appreciate the dynamic relationship between contemporary contexts and biblical passages.
