"The Dead Sea Scrolls" is an unsurpassingly lucid introduction to a complex subject. Edmund Wilson unravels the exciting tale of how the scrolls first came into the possession of students in the war-torn Palestine of the late forties, the excavation of the Dead Sea sect's monastery at Qumran, the subsequent debates the scrolls provoked among theologians and scholars, and the light these unprecedented finds have thrown upon biblical studies and the life of Christ." ~~Financial Times
