Description

From The Publisher:

While providing a comprehensive introduction to the Dead Sea Scrolls, this book also takes a fresh look at many controversial questions: Why were the scrolls written? Are they prophetic? How are they related to Christianity and Judaism? Stephen Hodge tells the amazing story of their discovery in 1947 as well as the historical drama being played out at the time they were written 2,000 years ago. Most significantly, he draws on fresh evidence on the subject of authorship and explores emerging theories. Unbiased and accessible, this book includes 8 pages of color photos and provides a riveting account of one of the most widely debated archaeological finds of the last century.
