Conquering character : the characterization of Joshua in Joshua 1-11 by Sarah Lebhar Hall( )

While recent Old Testament scholarship has seen a steady rise in the prominence of narrative approaches to the text, little such work has been done on the book of Joshua. This book offers a narrative treatment of the conquest accounts, with specific attention given to the characterization of Joshua.

But this approach neglects the many aspects of Joshua's character that are unique, and does not address the text's presentation of his flaws.
