Description: You know and use the Stone Edition, which has become the standard English-language Chumash. But what about the rest of the Written Torah, the Prophets and the Writings? Where can we go for a sweeping understanding of the text, as understood by the Sages and the classic commentators presented in a way that makes it both accessible and enjoyable to scholar and layman alike?
The first two volumes of the Rubin Edition of the Prophets Joshua/Judges and Samuel I and II provided the answer.
Thanks to the brilliance of the ArtScroll/Mesorah team of scholars and writers led by Rabbi Nosson Scherman the tradition continues, with The Rubin Edition of I Kings and II Kings in one volume. This translation and commentary on the Prophets is sweeping the English-speaking world, providing new dimensions of understanding and beauty. It not only brings the verses alive, it makes them speak to us in language, in outlook, in aspiration for spiritual growth.
