The Dead Sea Scrolls: A New Translation

| /

The Dead Sea Scrolls: A New Translation is a landmark work that brings to life the long-inaccessible scrolls of Qumran. Three translators at the forefront of modern scrolls scholarship reveal the rich tapestry of writings known as the Dead Sea Scrolls. This is the most comprehensive translation ever compiled for general readers in any language. Translated into English, it contains virtually every legible portion of the fragmented scrolls, including revelatory information on early Xianity & its roots deeper than previously realized in ancient Judaism. Included also are scroll fragments that promise to alter views of biblical history, including never-before released texts & newly discovered writings by & about biblical prophets & ancestors. The translators provide commentary throughout that place the scrolls in their historical context. They also present an introduction giving an overview of their contents & discusses who authored them & why.
