Overall this is certainly a book worth reading if one is interested in the scrolls at Qumran.
This is an excellent one volume introduction and overview of the scrolls, from history to contents to translation to importance.
He does not jump to conclusions about the involvement of the Essenes at Qumran but does not deny it either.
...but much of the book seems to be a diatribe on the politics of allocating study materials. It does not convincingly make the point that Jesus had little to do with Essenes.Published 18 months ago by Dr. Ann M. Dalrymple
