The Complete Dead Sea Scrolls in English 7th Edition
From The Publisher:
A newly updated edition of the landmark translation by one of our greatest religious scholars
Since its publication in 1962, esteemed biblical expert Géza Vermes's translation of the Dead Sea Scrolls has established itself as the authoritative standard. The original manuscripts, discovered in the Judean Desert between 1947 and 1956, completely transformed our understanding of the Hebrew Bible, early Judaism, and the origin of Christianity. Now in its seventh edition, The Complete Dead Sea Scrolls in English has been updated with a number of previously unpublished texts, as well as extensive new introductory material and notes. Some sixty years after the Scrolls' discovery, this revised and expanded volume crowns a lifetime of research by Vermes.
The result is an excellent up-to-date report on the Dead Sea Scrolls and a competent translation of the bulk of the nonbiblical texts. It will enable the general public to read the nonbiblical scrolls and to judge for themselves their importance.
Joseph A. Fitzmyer, The New York Times Book Review
