9780671797973: Dead Sea Scrolls Deception

The oldest Biblical manuscripts in existence, the Dead Sea Scrolls were found in caves near Jerusalem in 1947, only to be kept a tightly held secret for nearly fifty more years, until the Huntington Library unleashed a storm of controversy in 1991 by releasing copies of the Scrolls. In this gripping investigation authors Baigent and Leigh set out to discover how a small coterie of orthodox biblical scholars gained control over the Scrolls, allowing access to no outsiders and issuing a strict "consensus" interpretation. The authors' questions begin in Israel, then lead them to the corridors of the Vatican and into the offices of the Inquisition. With the help of independent scholars, historical research, and careful analysis of available texts, the authors reveal what was at stake for these orthodox guardians: The Scrolls present startling insights into early Christianity -- insights that challenge the Church's version of the "facts." More than just a dramatic exposť of the intrigues surrounding these priceless documents, The Dead Sea Scrolls Deception presents nothing less than a new, highly significant perspective on Christianity.

From the Inside Flap:

Described as ?the academic scandal of the twentieth century,? this is the story of how and why hundreds of ancient Hebrew and Aramaic manuscripts, hidden for some nineteen centuries, and which disclose nothing less than a new account of the origins of Christianity, have, until very recently, remained concealed from the rest of the world.

From the Back Cover:

“It is enough to make anyone curious about the early days of Christianity weep with frustration.” -- Mail on Sunday
