 Richard Price Samaritan Reviewed by Terry D'Auray
The Samaritan is Ray Mitchell, former coke addict, cab driver, teacher and successful Hollywood writer, who returns to the New Jersey projects where he grew up to "make a dent" in the lives of his neighbors.
Using the police investigation as a coat hanger, Price's 'Samaritan' is a social-political story of racial divides, class differences, generational gaps and economic barriers and the people who survive in that environment.
'Samaritan' is not a splash; it is a dent, a truly compelling and powerful story that demonstrates that it is not the grand gesture that matters.

 "Samaritan" by Richard Price - Salon
What makes that response so puzzling is that the voices of the individual characters in "Samaritan" (as in the two novels that preceded it) are as vivid and immediate as anything offered by his peers, and Price's own voice resonates through these books with a unique combination of weariness and urgency.

 The Samaritan Pentateuch
It has been suggested by a number of our Muslim brothers that the existence of the so-called Samaritan Pentateuch (SamP), because it differs in places (regardless of what those differences may be) is proof that the Hebrew Masoretic Text is at very least, unreliable, and at worst, blatantly corrupted.
Simply, the Samaritan Pentateuch (SamP) is a later recension of the Hebrew Torah text, less faithfully rendered than in the Masoretic Text (MT).
The Samaritan text has been adapted to Samaritan theology (for example the 'centering' of the 'holy place of God' from Jerusalem to Mt. Gerazim').
