The Dead Sea Scrolls Uncovered: The First Complete Translation and Interpretation of 50 Key Documents Withheld for over 35 Years
Robert H. Eisenman and Michael O. Wise
From The Publisher:
Compiled by scholars Robert Eisenman and Michael Wise, these fifty documents cast a startling light on events in Palestine at the dawn of Christianity. They portray not a family of peaceful Essenes but a fiercely militant religious sect whose members awaited an apocalyptic Day of Vengeance. The authors speak of a messiah and the resurrection of the dead. They allude not only to doctrines we now recognize as Christian but also to the precursors of Islam and Jewish Kabbalism. Providing precise transliterations into modern Hebrew characters and English translations, and accompanied by detailed commentaries, The Dead Sea Scrolls Uncovered represents a quantum leap in our knowledge of 1the ancient origins of modern faith.
"[Eisemnan and Wise] make their case with the utmost clarity and scholarship.... The work is ... patently thorough and careful …. A picture of the ideological turmoil, fascinatingly intense, out of which Christianity sprang into the world."
