Editorial Reviews

Ashland Theological Journal
"This is certainly the collection of choice for any devotee of Qumran studies, and will quickly become the standard text for use in seminaries and graduate programs."

Biblical Archaeology Review
"A monumental work—the most extensive piece of original research undertaken by any scrolls scholar in the last decade."

Currents in Theology and Mission
"This will certainly be the standard for English translations of these documents for the foreseeable future. It is complete, accurate, and accessible. Anyone interested in early Judaism and the origins of Christianity should secure this text. It would also be a good addition to any parish library."

Journal for the Study of the Old Testament
"The most useful of the available collections not merely for its completeness but for its complete list of Qumran MSS serving also as an index to the context. Absolutely invaluable!"

The Bible Today
"The best and most comprehensive collection to date. A crisp introduction detailing the history of Qumran and assessing the nature of this Jewish sect plus an extensive bibliography make this an excellent resource for libraries and serious students of Qumran and the New Testament."
