James H. Charlesworth Series Editor
From BIBAL Press

This exciting new series provides a comprehensive overview of the Dead Sea Scrolls, Early Christianity, Judaism in Jesus' time, the political, social, and religious environment of the Early Christian world, and related subjects-all from biblical archaeological and theological perspectives. Amply illustrated and written in lively, non-technical language that requires no prior knowledge of the subject, each volume will be the work of one of the world's leading scholars. It's like having world-famous authorities in your own living room, explaining fascinating topics in easy-to-understand terms.

The general editor of the series is Prof. James H. Charlesworth, one of the world's leading experts on the Dead Sea Scrolls. He has personally selected the titles in the series both for their scholarship and their accessibility to non-specialists.

Each volume in the series has a four-color paperback cover, is about 96 pages in length, and has several black & white illustrations. The first volume was published in January 1998, and subsequent volumes will become available at about six to eight week intervals.
