The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible comprises the biblical manuscripts, including many new Psalms, Apocryphal books, and previously unknown readings of Deuteronomy and Isaiah (which appear to have been among the most important books of the Bible to this group of Essenes). The translation of each book is preceded by an introduction that describes the text's importance to the Essenes, their distinctive interpretations of the text, and suggestions of how historical and political events may have shaped these interpretations. Translators Martin Abegg Jr., Peter Flint, and Eugene Ulrich have loaded this volume with scholarly notes and commentary, but their interpretations are formatted in a way that does not impede the general reader's enjoyment of the book. The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible breathes new life into scripture by delving into the earliest source material yet discovered. It is a crucial work to reckon with for anyone interested in Jewish life around the time of Jesus. --Michael Joseph Gross --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wishes to study the Bible beyond daily reading.
`Preserving parts of all but one biblical book, the scrolls confirm that the text of the Old Testament as it has been handed down through the ages is largely correct.
If one is interested in what the Dead Sea Scrolls had to say about the text of the Bible, this book has the answers.
Iam after the TRUTH. This Bible put the light on the word. When you use it side-by-side with your "preferred" bible you can see the changes made by men during centuries. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Olwin Carolina

It is excellent in that it shows what is off from the Masorite Hebrew. You have to remember that it uses pagan Words for the Creator and not His True Name.Published 3 months ago by Ron Weiss
