Item Description...
Overview
In the winter of 1946-47, a shepherd boy threw a stone into a cave, hitting a clay jar and uncovering one of the most significant archaeological discoveries of modern times: the Dead Sea Scrolls. Though the saga of the discovery has been told and retold many times, less attention has been paid to how the events have unfolded over the decades. In this accessible and illuminating work, one of the world's foremost Dead Sea Scrolls scholars-and one of the first women to actually see the documents-reflects on the most significant learnings about these ancient documents of faith. How have scholars' minds changed as their understanding of the scrolls has expanded over the decades? How have the scrolls influenced our understanding of Scripture? What have we learned about the worship practices of the Qumran community? And what can the scrolls teach us about the role of women in early Judaism? Inviting her readers into the many controversies that have surrounded the scrolls and their publication, Eileen Schuller provides an authoritative overview to how the discovery and study of the Dead Sea Scrolls have sharpened our understanding of the early Jewish faith, including the Jewish religion that served as the foundation for early Christianity.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Perfect book to help explain something difficult in an easy to understand manner.  Apr 10, 2007
I enjoyed learning more about this discovery. This is an ancient discovery of truly biblical proportions.
 
A concise and ideal exposition  Oct 4, 2006
Written by Eileen M. Schuller, professor of Religious Studies at McMaster University and one of the leaders in translating, editing, and publishing the Dead Sea Scrolls over the past twenty-five years, The Dead Sea Scrolls: What Have We Learned? is a solid overview of the Dead Sea Scrolls, ancient texts from the religious Essene sect of two thousand years ago discovered in the mid-twentieth century. In addition, The Dead Sea Scrolls addresses how the Scrolls have influenced modern religious scholars, broadened understanding of early Jewish faith, and what they say about worship practices and the role of women in early Judaism. Written in candid terms accessible to lay readers and religious scholars alike, The Dead Sea Scrolls is a concise and ideal exposition of what decades of research have discovered from ancient texts.
