A concise and ideal exposition Oct. 3 2006
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.
