Insightful
4 stars By Matthew Poole, Jul 21 2017
I'm enjoying this, particularly the praise and apocryphal psalms and obscure things like the fragment of the Book of Giants. There is a lot of insight about the everyday life and thought of the Essenes, which gives you a picture of them as well as the academic appeal of the scrolls. The title of the book is a little misleading, as it doesn't have the canonical Biblical books found in the caves in this collection, which would have been nice and without them tends to put the whole business of the Essenes in a slightly different light. If you're called to curiosity regarding the Dead Sea Scrolls, give this one a look.
