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.
