A Significant Analysis of Various Sources,
This review is from: The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Christian Myth (Paperback)
After reading four of Allegro's books, The Dead Sea Scrolls, The Mushroom and The Cross, The End of The Road and now The Dead Sea Scrolls and The Christian Myth, I have found all of these books to be written with completely different arguments, showing the wits and talent of this man. In this particular book, Allegro clearly shows knowledge of the New Testament, Philo, Pliny, the Gnostic Gospels, the writings of the early church fathers and information that he personally obtained through his research on the Dead Sea Scrolls that includes details of the Essenes and Zealots. Allegro's interpretation, conclusion and opinion based on his research are included here, which I find far more objective and credible than the majority of his critics.
