6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Israel Drazin TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 20, 2009
Format: Hardcover
This is the first book by Rabbi Steven Pruzansky, who published his second volume Judges for our Time, Contemporary Lessons from the Book of Shoftim in 2009. Rabbi Pruzansky's goal is to demonstrate how the biblical books of Joshua and Judges, which he calls by their original Hebrew titles, have useful relevance for people today. The volume is interesting and it stimulates its readers to think.
Rabbi Pruzansky, spiritual leader of Congregation Bnai Yeshurun of Teaneck, New Jersey, placed a letter from Rabbi Berel Wein of Israel in the beginning of the volume. Rabbi Wein writes: "Many of the leading Rabbis of our time have warned against attempting such comparisons (of relevance). However, this is not a unanimous opinion for otherwise what is the purpose of studying Tenakh?"
Perhaps without realizing it, Rabbi Wein raises interesting questions for Rabbi Pruzansky's readers. Does our author succeed in showing that the ancients confronted the same problems that people face in modern societies? If he does prove that the difficulties are the same, are the ancient answers to the problems solutions that modern people would want to implement? If the ancient troubles are not the same as those faced by modern people and/or the resolutions are outdated or otherwise unacceptable, is Rabbi Wein correct that there is no purpose in studying these biblical books?
Rabbi Pruzansky sees the book of Joshua, which dealt with the original conquest of the land of Israel by Joshua, the successor of Moses, containing "lessons for our own national return to the land of Israel after a long and difficult sojourn in the exile."
Rabbi Pruzansky raises a host of thought provoking questions as he analyses the biblical book.

Format: Hardcover
A new, creative and dynamic approach to the study of the prophets. This work brings the book of Yehoshua to life, and demonstrates the obligation we have to draw lessons from the Bible in every sphere of life - including building the Jewish state.

I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in bible study and modern Israel.

Format: Hardcover
While providing rich historical context and scholarly detail, the book remains an enjoyable read from beginning to end. Most deeply appreciated are the thoughtful insights into human nature and man's relationship with the Almighty. Although I've studied this subject matter in depth before, this book made me see everything from an entirely new perspective.

Format: Hardcover
The book is simply outstanding. Rabbi Pruzansky is able to draw lessons from the book of Joshua to contemporary issues facing the modern day state of Israel . He applies these lessons to our own lives in understanding what is the role of every Jew in promting the proper Jewish national identity. It is easy to read, comprehend and really makes one think. I highly recommend it.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I liked the fresh perspective this book gave me about ancient and modern Israel. I am becoming more aware that there really is "nothing new under the sun". I appreciated that the author was careful to define the Hebrew words used. I plan on sharing my book with others.
