- Publisher From a new generation of Dead Sea Scrolls scholars comes this landmark work. Michael Wise, Martin Abegg, Jr. and Edward Cook bring the long-inaccessible ancient scrolls of Qumran vividly to life, translating and deciphering virtually every legible portion of the fragmented scrolls, with startling results. For the first time since their discovery, this historic volume reveals: ^Intriguing revelations about biblical history and the roots of Christianity. ^Never-before-seen stories about Abraham, Jacob, and Enoch-- including a text explaining why God demanded the sacrifice of Isaac. ^Twelve texts not included in the Bible that claim Moses as their author. ^New psalms attributed to King David and to Joshua. ^Texts illuminating ancient doctrines about angels and writings claiming to be revelations of angels themselves-- including the Archangel Michael. ^The translators provide pointed commentary throughout that places the scrolls in their true historical context. Their compelling, insightful introduction not only presents an overview of the often surprising contents of the scrolls, it discusses what are perhaps their greatest mysteries--who authored them and why.

- Publisher A fully revised and updated edition of our translation of the complete Dead Sea Scrolls, making it the definitive translation of the Scrolls in English. ^ With new texts, updated introductions, a glossary of terms, and other new additions, this will become the definitive translation of the Scrolls, and the lead companion to our other "Dead Sea Scrolls Guides: The Meaning of the Dead Sea Scrolls" and the "Dead Sea Scrolls Bible,"
