An eminent Dead Sea Scrolls researcher, James C. VanderKam offers a popular, up-to-date introduction to the scrolls and the ongoing debate that surrounds their study. Chapters cover all the major subjects of scroll inquiry: the discoveries of the manuscripts and nearby archaeological remains during the 1940s and 1950s and the methods used to date them, the content and character of the scrolls texts, the identity, history, and beliefs of the people who lived in Qumran and collected, wrote, and copied scrolls, and the importance of the scrolls to biblical studies.
