Reviews - What do customers think about The Dead Sea Scriptures?
Great for indepth study! Nov 5, 1998
I have a very old paperback of this with a copyright of 1956. This "Doubleday Anchor Original" is a bold and interesting book for the laymen. Though my copy is not and should not be used for a scholary tool. It is a step in that direction.
Excellent translation Jul 16, 1998
I 've read other translation of the scrolls but find them not as appealling or poetic or powerful. This translation shows the intense care and knowledge of it's subject. It's very important to keep good writings like this available to all believers of those that think they can honer the traditions of true caring for creation and God. This book is very connected to the Essene Gospel of Peace of Jesus Christ by Edmond Bordeaux Szekely. I read these constantly together. The question is why do important writings like this go out of print.
