Description: Each year, at the study days organized by the Yeshivat Chovevei Torah Rabbinical School, hundreds of teachers and lay people listen in rapt attention to modern Orthodox Judaism's most learned and engaging Bible teachers. The lecturs span the range of Biblical books, always addressing the questions: What does the text really mean? What is the eternal message we are to learn from it? This volume, the first of a new series, brings to the written page a selection of lectures on the Book of Samuel first presented at the YCT study days. Contributors include R. Hayyim Angel, R. Joshua Berman, R. Jack Bieler, R. Yehuda Felix, Dr. Leeor Gottlieb, R. Nati Helfgot, R. Shmuel Herzfeld, R. David Silber, and R. Avi Weiss.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Historical Books, 1-2 Samuel, Literature
