Book Description

April 15 2006
In the winter of 1946-47, a shepherd boy threw a stone into a cave, hitting a clay jar and uncovering one of the most significant archaeological discoveries of modern times: the Dead Sea Scrolls. Though the saga of the discovery has been told and retold many times, less attention has been paid to how the events have unfolded over the decades. In this accessible and illuminating work, one of the world's foremost Dead Sea Scrolls scholars--and one of the first women to actually see the documents--reflects on the most significant learnings about these ancient documents of faith.

5.0 out of 5 stars A concise and ideal exposition Oct. 3 2006
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Written by Eileen M. Schuller, professor of Religious Studies at McMaster University and one of the leaders in translating, editing, and publishing the Dead Sea Scrolls over the past twenty-five years, The Dead Sea Scrolls: What Have We Learned? is a solid overview of the Dead Sea Scrolls, ancient texts from the religious Essene sect of two thousand years ago discovered in the mid-twentieth century. In addition, The Dead Sea Scrolls addresses how the Scrolls have influenced modern religious scholars, broadened understanding of early Jewish faith, and what they say about worship practices and the role of women in early Judaism. Written in candid terms accessible to lay readers and religious scholars alike, The Dead Sea Scrolls is a concise and ideal exposition of what decades of research have discovered from ancient texts.
