Illuminating the Dead Sea Scrolls : Mysteries of Qumran revealed
Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship
Described by many scholars as the greatest archaeological discovery of the 20th century, the Dead Sea Scrolls contain the oldest biblical manuscripts ever found. The lavishly illustrated Illuminating the Dead Sea Scrolls introduces readers to these spectacular scrolls from their discovery, to the selling and reselling of the scrolls for profit, to the publication of their texts, and finally to the technological advances that help scholars study the scrolls today. Inside you'll discover how the Dead Sea Scrolls reveal previously unknown psalms, restore a missing verse from Psalm 145, and describe a treasure worthy of Indiana Jones (the treasure has yet to be found).
