Like most series, the NICOT has some volumes that are superior to others. Woudstra’s volume on Joshua is highly-recommended. Keith Mathison says that while it is at times advanced and technical, most of the difficult material is relegated to the footnotes. This leaves “the body of the text readable and insightful.” [Full Review]
It is difficult to recommend a single commentary on Joshua, and this one is not as good as it could be.
Like the other commentaries in the NICOT series, this one is slightly more technical in nature than the commentaries mentioned above (although not much more technical than the commentary by Howard). Most of the really difficult material, however, is found in the footnotes. The body of the text is readable and insightful. Very helpful overall. [Full Review]
