Everyone has heard of the Dead Sea Scrolls, yet it can be challenging to distinguish myth from reality amid the intrigues, politics, and spectacular claims. Timothy Lim investigates the cultural and historical context of the scrolls in this book and assesses their importance for our comprehension of the Old Testament as well as the antecedents of Christianity and Judaism. By using the archaeology and history of the Dead Sea region, Lim relates the amazing tale of the scrolls' discovery and their cultural context. The cast of people, scandals, and debates that sped the scrolls' ascension to the role of cultural icon are not left out as he discusses the science behind their reading and dating.
