Rabbi Allen Schwartz compiles, categorizes, and explains over 100 seeming violations of Torah law in the books of Joshua, Judges, and Samuel.

Rabbi Schwartz’s unique work is filled with unexpected interpretations, and is ideal for anyone who wants to understand these characters, as well as the perspectives of the Talmudic and Medieval Rabbis, more deeply. A satisfying and engaging read!
