The Dead Sea Scrolls are a household name, yet many people do not know what they say or why they are important. The Dead Sea Scrolls provides all the background they will need to appreciate these unique ancient documents. Readers will learn how the Scrolls were found, how they became embroiled in controversy, what light they shed on our understanding of Judaism and early Christianity, and how they have helped scholars understand the development of the Biblical text and the Biblical canon. All of the articles in The Dead Sea Scrolls are written by leading scholars but are aimed at a general audience. The book is also a treat for the eyes, illustrated with more than 90 color photographs.

Within the pages of The Dead Sea Scrolls, you will encounter a full historical and photographic account of the Dead Sea Scrolls, from their initial discovery in 1947 to their recent publication and ongoing interpretation. You will learn not only how the Dead Sea Scrolls were found but also why many scholars believe that other scrolls still await discovery. In addition to becoming acquainted with both the Scrolls themselves and the ancient group who originally wrote them, you will explore why the Dead Sea Scolls continue to be significant for the Jewish and Christian religions today.About the Author:
