Reclaiming the Dead Sea Scrolls: The History of Judaism, the Background of Christianity, and the Lost Library of Qumran
From The Publisher:
Ever since their discovery in 1947, the Dead Sea Scrolls have fascinated people from all walks of life. Because these scrolls include the earliest known manuscripts of the Bible, as well as nonbiblical literature, they contain a gold mine of information about the history of Judaism and the background of Christianity. Many studies of the scrolls have appeared in recent years rehearsing tired theories about their origins and significance. Some books sensationalize the controversy between scholars concerning control and publication of the scrolls. At last, in Reclaiming the Dead Sea Scrolls, we get an invigorating new perspective as we return to the study of the scrolls themselves.
"A pioneering work of scholarship by a man who has made the scrolls his life's work ... There is little doubt that the book will reverberate for a long time to come."
