Well known and respected writer

One of the reasons I enjoy Davis's exposition so much is that I feel confident that he has done his exegetical homework, and so is not just delivering blessed, unhistorical thoughts on the text.-- Themelios Journal
One of the reasons I enjoy Davis's exposition so much is that I feel confident that he has done his exegetical homework, and so is not just delivering blessed, unhistorical thoughts on the text. Yet at the same time, he applies the text so well.-- Simon Gathercole
... The blurb on the back cover is on the point: 'Readable,
Reliable, Relevant', and I wish I could have thought of those words
first to describe this book.
"A happy blend of exegetical and historical study on the one hand, and homiletical treatment and application on the other. Ideas pop out everywhere, even in the most unlikely places. New insights abound. No one who reads this book will ever find Joshua dull and tedious again."-- Richard A. Bodey, Professor of Homiletics, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
What a great book... not only faithful to the text but also full of great illustrations, practical challenges and conetmporary language. This is a great addition to any library!-- Evangelical Times
