This commentary is superb. The only reason it’s ranked #2 is because Howard doesn’t deal as extensively with the Hebrew when compared to Harstad. However, he certainly covers the Hebrew text sufficiently and is often incisive when doing so. Howard does a great job of showing parallels and connections to other Old Testament passages, especially connections to the Pentateuch. Additionally, he interacts often with other interpreters throughout the commentary (usually in footnotes)... [Full Review]

Howard’s contribution to the New American Commentary series is widely lauded. It is thoroughly Evangelical and, according to the experts at Denver Seminary, “appreciative of the history, with useful word studies.” Longman recommends it for being “well-written, well-researched and well-thought-out.” It is a slightly more advanced read than the two that have been recommended ahead of it.

Howard is a solid mix of lucidity, scholarship, and exposition. Hess (TOTC, 1996) is also insightful with more ANE background and would also be nice to have.
David M. Howard's introduction to the historical books of the Old Testament is an outstanding work. In this volume, he is able to devote much more space to Joshua. The result is a truly helpful commentary. [Full Review]
