Rabbi Allen Schwartz compiles, categorizes, and explains over 100 seeming violations of Torah law in the books of Joshua, Judges, and Samuel. The Tanna’im and Amoraim were acutely aware of these apparent violations and in some cases, were courageously open about criticizing the heroes of the Bible. In other cases, they fiercely fought to acquit the biblical characters from any wrongdoing. 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!
