Darkah Shel Torah", also known as "Kadmas Ha'amek", was originally published as a preface to the Netziv's magnum opus, "Ha'amek Sh'alah". This work, consisting of three sections, strives to demonstrate how the true path of Torah becomes realized through the proper application of analysis and the development of the proper character and attitude for discovering God's truth.

With such an approach, the Jew becomes closest to God through the study of Torah, as both the Jewish Nation and the Torah emanate from the same Divine source.To facilitate understanding, this translation contains numerous footnotes that cite the Netziv's other works, the sources he used, as well as explanations of the Netziv's numerous references. Summaries have been provided to guide the reader in the more difficult chapters.
