The Dead Sea Scrolls - a mixture of writing, stories, poems and texts - are by far the most significant theological manuscripts discovered this century. This work provides a complete and up-to-date translation aimed at the general reader.Review:
..".the spirit of debate and critique, reappraisal and revision is here very much present. The brief discussions of the languages and scripts of the scrolls are a nice and somewhat unusual touch in a volume of this kind."-- Bible Review..".a rather readable presentation of a large portion of the non-biblical scrolls, which commends itself to the general reader."-- Journal of Biblical Literature"The Dead Sea Scrolls are not just for scholars anymore. They are here in a book that anyone can understand. "Read these texts." Hidden in their caves, they survived the ravages of time and decay to speak to us today across two thousand years. They have survived their authors and will survive us, their readers."-- John Dominic Crossan, professor emeritus, De Paul University and author of "The Birth of Christianity" and "The Historical Jesus"
