Used by students around the world as an essential learning tool!
The Book of Kings begins with King David's last days, taking us through Solomon's reign, the glorious era of Jewish History in which the Temple was built and the land was blessed with peace and tranquility. We witness the schism of the Kingdom, the ups and downs of Judah, the decadence of Israel, until the reign of Jehoshaphat of Judah and Ahaziah of Israel. The book takes us to the latter part of Elijah's role as a prophet, in which he fulfilled G-d's mission and yielded to neither the pressure of the kings or the populace.
This invaluable aid to learning Tanach is used by students around the world! It provides the benefit of owning two sets in one, since each volume features both the complete Hebrew Mikraoth Gedoloth as well as a concise, modern English translation of the text with extensive commentary.
In addition, each and every Rashi is translated, as are selections from the Ramban, Sforno, Rashbam, Ibn Ezra, from Talmudic and Midrashic sources, and numerous other commentaries never before translated. Rabbi Moshe Feinstein, zt"l, gave his unstinting approbation to this now classic series.
These books are perfect for students and teachers who want a deeper understanding of Tanach.
