This landmark work comes from a new generation of Dead Sea Scrolls scholars. Wise, Abegg and Cook bring the long-inaccessible ancient scrolls of Qumran to life, translating and deciphering virtually every legible portion of the fragmented scrolls. This book contains: intriguing revelations about biblical history and the roots of Christianity; new stories about Abraham, Jacob, and Enoch--including a text explaining why God demanded the sacrifice of Isaac; twelve texts not included in the Bible that claim Moses as their author; new psalms attributed to King David and to Joshua; texts illuminating ancient doctrines about angels and writings claiming to be revelations of angels themselves -- including the Archangel Michael. The translators provide commentary throughout placing the scrolls in their true historical context, while the introduction discusses what is perhaps their greatest mystery--who authored them and why.--From publisher description.
