This book contains virtually every legible portion of the fragmented Scrolls, including revelatory information on early Christianity, which is rooted far deeper in ancient Judaism than previously realized. Also included are Scroll fragments that promise to dramatically alter our view of biblical history, including never-before released texts and newly discovered writings by and about key biblical prophets and ancestors.
With new texts, updated introductions, a glossary of terms, and other new additions, this will become the definitive English translation of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
Michael Wise, who is among the foremost scholars translating the Scrolls today, has been profiled in Time, the New York Times, and the Chicago Tribune.
Martin Abegg, Jr., is co-director of the Dead Sea Scrolls Institute at Trinity Western University.
"...the spirit of debate and critique, reappraisal and revision is here very much present. The brief discussions of the languages and scripts of the scrolls are a nice and somewhat unusual touch in a volume of this kind."
