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 If the ancient troubles are not the same as those faced by modern people and/or the resolutions are outdated or otherwise unacceptable, is Rabbi Wein correct that there is no purpose in studying these biblical books?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.Read more ›
