Summary
This commentary attempts to understand and explain the book of Joshua on its own value and not as part of a larger literary creation as those theories are largely disputed. It includes the insights of modern scholarship, but also does not run a blind eye on earlier interpretations of the book. Joshua is arguably the most important biblical book when it comes to questions of historical geography of ancient Israel. Here this aspect is taken into account more than in some other modern commentaries; this can also be related to the fact that the author is a biblical scholar who lives in Israel having worked in the fields of archeology and historical geography
