On monday nights, I attend a bible study for ladies, led by one of my oldes and dearest friends. We're studying Joshua. I wanted to have a commentary to accompany my weekly study time in the book, so I looked at the recommendations of Keith Mathison. I have purchased commentaries on his recommendation before, and I have never been disappointed.
Mathison suggested the book Joshua. No Falling Words, by Dale Ralph Davis. This book is published by Christian Focus, and they publish books I like, so I bought it. It's a slender volume, unlike the tome by D.A. Carson that Mathison recommended for John. I will say, though, it was one of the best commentaries I've read, size notwithstanding.
This volume about Joshua is going to be very good, too. Here is a snippet commenting about how Joshua was commanded to meditate on God's word (Joshua 1:8):
Life in the kingdom of God must be lived out of the Word of God. Joshua 1 and Psalm 1 alike tell us that a life pleasing to God does not arise from mystical experiences or warm feelings or from a new gimmick advocated in a current release from one of our evangelical publishers; no, it comes from the word God has already spoken and from obedience to that word.
To the word already spoken. In a day an age when bibles are cheap and available, there is no reason not to live by the Word of God!
