Koren Publishers recently sent me a review copy of Mikra and Meaning: Studies in Bible and Its Interpretation by Rabbi Nathaniel Helfgot, one of the books in their new Maggid imprint. Review behind the cut )

Despite these shortcomings, though, Rabbi Helfgot and Maggid have given us a book that succeeds on three levels: First, its analyses enhance our understanding of Tanakh. Second, it presents by explanation and by example a new formulation of Torah scholarship. Third, it helps establish Maggid as a home for Modern Orthodox publishing, a much-needed counterbalance to the existing publishers of Orthodox texts.

I highly recommend this book.
