Description: This book offers a concise introduction to the full range of writings in the Qumran: genuine, apocryphal, and pseudoepigraphic works as well as “Biblical” manuscripts. The basic knowledge regarding each work is cogently summarized and brief passages are presented verbatim. This approach allows each of the texts to speak for itself as part of a unified entity without becoming prematurely subordinated to an overarching thesis.
Subjects: Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, Dead Sea Scrolls
