Item Description...
Overview
Joshua, which is part of the NIV Application Commentary Series, helps readers learn how the message of Joshua can have the same powerful impact today that it did when it was first written.

Publishers Description
Reading Joshua can be, frankly, a jarring experience. Serious, troubling questions about God s attitude toward his created peoples arise, questions with no easy answer. But the book of Joshua presents itself, warts (and wars ) and all, and asks readers to let it tell its story from its point of view and out of its ancient context. It asks them to give it the benefit of the doubt and permit it to speak to them. This commentary aims to give its voice a clear hearing --- to translate its ancient cultural form in such a way that it freely speaks about the life of faith today. Basically, the book of Joshua tells how biblical Israel navigated a major historical transition early in its national life. The book shows that guiding these changes is Israel s God, Yahweh, through his chosen servant, Joshua. The introductory sections to follow set the scene for entering the book of Joshua and the ancient world about which it reports. Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. They focus on the original meaning of the passage but don t discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable --- but the job is only half done The NIV Application Commentary Series helps bring both halves of the interpretive task together. This unique, award-winning series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into our present-day context. Joshua helps readers learn how the message of Joshua can have the same powerful impact today that it did when it was first written."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Very Good  Jul 9, 2008
I give this four stars because I am not yet finished with it (currently in Ecclesiastes 3). If the material maintains the same course it could easily attain the next star. I like it because of its exegetical and homiletical value. I think it is thorough, perhaps a bit wordy, but that is something I like (at least as he has done so).

As a preacher all I need is a seed sown and I can build the rest.
 
Clear thinking on some confusing books  May 10, 2008
Iain Provan is one of the most balanced and thoughful OT scholars alive today, and this commentary is just another example of his outstanding thoughfulness. His comments on Ecclesiastes help the reader see a unity and logical flow to a book that almost defies logical flow. What was very interesting was his take on the meaning of the word, "hebel" (sometimes translated as "vanity" or "meaningless"). Provan suggests an alternate translation of "fleeting" that makes better sense of the book as a whole. Life is not without meaning, according to the writer of Ecclesiastes. It is fleeting, and thus the activities that are designed to "use life rather than live life" create a sense of futility.

In the Song of Songs, Provan opts for a three person drama- the Shulammite woman, the king who takes her into his harem and her devoted lover from the country. Again, this interpretational grid helps unravel some of the confusion of the text, such as "How could a book devoted to sexual intimacy in marriage exalt a king with so many concubines?"

Provan's exegesis is first-rate, his theological reflections are penetrating and how he bridges contexts are worth their weight in gold for the person who is using this commentary to help prepare lessons or sermons on either of these books. Provan is at once readable and profound and you will find that purchasing this commentary will be money very well spent!!
 
Excellent commentary  Apr 20, 2007
Dr Provan's exegesis is very insightful and penetrating. He avoids cliches in discussing Ecclesiastes and gets down to the heart of interpretation. One of the best commentaries on Ecclesisastes I have read.
