Holman QuickSource Guide to the Dead Sea Scrolls
Buried in a forgotten cave and lost for thousands of years, The Dead Sea Scrolls came back into history in when several of them were discovered by a Bedouin sheep herder who was throwing rocks. Though he thought them worthless at first, scholars came to see them as invaluable clues to unlocking the ancient world of Israel. Some media outlets have claimed that the scrolls undermine the Christian message or paint unexpected pictures of Jewish religion.
Now after more than a half a century of examination by scholars from around the world, the truth about the Dead Sea Scrolls can be told.
