Since I was a kid in school I've had a lot of curiosity about non-canonical scriptures. So I've read as many as I could get my hands on. These fragmented bits of old books have been a bit of a disappointment compared to others (The Nag Hammadi group, for instance). In this book you get translations of the reconstructed scrolls interlaced with a running commentary which, in my opinion focuses too much on the ongoing arguments about exactly who the sectarians of Qumran were and what they believed. ...more

I certainly had to change my pre conceived notions about the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Very interesting. This is the 2004 edition of the Dead Sea Scrolls translations. Technology has allowed them much more capability to determine what is in the scrolls. There are some very interesting texts in there.

Loved it. Didn't read the commentaries as much but the translated text was very cool.

A really interesting translation. This was my first Dead Sea Scrolls experience so I can give a scholarly review, but in reading it I learned a lot!

What can I say? They're the most important archaeological find of the 20th century and more are being published (and faked) constantly.

Biblical bonus content! Not really any surprises here. The passage about all the men in the city stoning rebellious #teens to death was pretty choice, though. I’ll definitely keep that one in the holster for potential future children.
