Professional reviews

"This is the story of Samson as told in the Old Testament. Grossman goes farther than the Bible itself by bringing in the commentary of the Talmud and the explications of later rabbis. So we learn of the birth of Samson and his relationship with his parents. Grossman focuses mostly on Samson's self-destructive relationships with women and the Philistines. Mel Foster narrates this audiobook in even tones that reflect Grossman's serious approach to the text. Foster twists his tongue expertly around the Hebrew words, adding credibility to Grossman's analysis of Samson's conflicted character. M.B.K. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
