Evangeline Tanjutco5 Stars Out Of 5September 13, 2010Evangeline TanjutcoThe book makes the scrolls' importance, especially to a Bible reader, easier to understand. Compared to other books written about the subject which for the most part spoke to researchers, students and scholars, this book speaks to the average reader and makes the complex simple and fun to read and does not take away the depth of the researh and study involving the scrolls.
