From The Publisher:

Charting a course between the academic and sensational approach of many books on the Dead Sea Scrolls, Johnathan Campbell provides a balanced and compelling look into all aspects of this intriguing story. Beginning with the 1947 discovery of the Scrolls, he recounts the battle over their release, which raged for almost 50 years. Relying on concrete evidence, the author analyzes the theories linking Jesus to the Scrolls, shows how the Scrolls relate to early Christianity, probes the relationship between the Bible and the Scrolls, and considers the mystery of the Scrolls' authorship.

In 1947, a huge collection of ancient manuscripts were found in caves near Khirbet Qumran, just south of Jericho, on the edge of the Dead Sea. These manuscripts, totalling nearly 800, have radically altered the way scholars view both the world of Judaism in the centuries leading up to the time of Christ, and the the Bible itself. Written by a persecuted Jewish sect, the Qumran Essenes, the Scrolls give profound insights into the world that Jesus was born into, and places the rise of Christianity into its historical context. Maps.


A clear and balanced telling of the scrolls' discovery and the debate surrounding them.
—Geza Vermes
