"The three commentaries in this volume will be of great help to laypeople, busy students, and pastors looking for simple, clear expositions of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth. They offer many valuable insights into individual passages as well as the overall messages of these books. The authors are informed biblical scholars who do not clutter their work with technical discussions only distantly related to the text's meaning. Their goal-of clarifying the original meaning of these important (yet often-neglected) books for today's readers-is admirably accomplished."
-David M Howard Jr., professor of Old Testament, Bethel Theological Seminary
