9781463566777: The Divine Name Controversy

The most important name in the universe is the personal name of God. However, it is also the most controversial name in existence. Bible scholars and translators have debated whether the name should be vocalized for millennia. Even the group that claims the Divine Name as part of their name, Jehovah's Witnesses, say they aren't sure of the correct pronunciation of God's name. But, if the Almighty gave himself a name, the question is, Is he capable of preserving it in his word the Bible? The author of The Divine Name Controversy (Vol. 1) searched God's name is a great number of Hebrew and Greek manuscripts. What he came up with will captivate the reader.

About the Author:

"Is Almighty God capable of preserving the true pronunciation of his name? Has he? How are the secret Dead Sea Scrolls [DSS] involved?" These questions grace the cover of Carr's first book and are the ones he asked himself while working at the world-renowned Ancient Biblical Manuscript Center (ABMC) in Claremont, California. In October 1989, the official newsletter of the ABMC, The Folio, said: "Dr. Firpo Carr...is currently working...in the Dead Sea Scrolls Inventory Project. At present he is performing an initial inventory of the collection of DSS photos [published and unpublished at the time] at the Center." There he examined the unpublished Dead Sea Scrolls where he found many occurrences of the unique name of the Creator of the Universe. But, according to Jewish tradition, the correct pronunciation of this name has been lost forever. Carr respectfully begs to differ and provides sound logic as to the reasons for his conclusions. He worked with such internationally respected scholars as Professor James A. Sanders, a well known Bible scholar and translator who served as president of the ABMC, and the late Professor Doctor John C. Trever, the first scholar to have had initial contact with the Dead Sea Scrolls. Not only was Professor Trever the director of the Dead Sea Scrolls Project, he was the very first scholar to photograph and announce to the world the existence of the Dead Sea Scrolls back in 1947. For years before his death he was the last living scholar of the small band of scholars who handled the Scrolls shortly after World War II. The Divine Name Controversy (Vol. 1) is the first book of its kind, containing the first information on the unpublished Dead Sea Scrolls. It is an in-depth consideration of the most popular name in the most popular book in history: the Holy Bible.
