The Bible is full of references to the Samaritans with several popular stories and events having some type of connection to this people. But who were they, and where do they fit into the story of the Jews? Understanding the Israelite-Samaritans: From Ancient to Modern provides rich illustrations and an insightful look into the lives of the Samaritans in the ancient world and exploring how that has translated to modern society. Author, Benyamim Tsedaka’s direct connection with the Samaritan community makes him an excellent source for understanding this unique community and its struggles throughout history.
