Top Five Commentaries on Joshua
Ligonier Ministries has a list and discussion of their top five commentaries on Joshua. I would not place Davis at #1 and I would include L. D. Hawk (Berit Olam) in the top 5. I would also include Madvig (EBC) ato the runner-up list. In any case, the top five they have listed are:
1. Dale Ralph Davis -- Joshua: No Falling Words (Focus on the Bible, 2000).
2. Richard S. Hess -- Joshua (Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries, 1996).
3. David M. Howard -- Joshua (New American Commentary, 1998).
4. Marten Woudstra -- The Book of Joshua (New International Commentary on the Old Testament, 1981).
5. Trent C. Butler -- Joshua (Word Biblical Commentary, 1983).
