A SBL – Society of Biblical Literature – publicou um pequeno livro sobre os Manuscritos do Mar Morto. Os textos, anteriormente publicados em revistas, são de vários autores e vêm acompanhados de mais de 90 fotografias coloridas, o que deve tornar o livrinho de apenas 96 páginas bem interessante para um primeiro contato com a mais importante descoberta de manuscritos feita na Palestina.
…this book provides readers with a full historical and photographic account of the Dead Sea Scrolls, from their initial discovery in 1947 to their recent publication and ongoing interpretation. Within the pages of this full-color volume, which includes over 90 photos, readers will learn not only how the Dead Sea Scrolls were found but also why many scholars believe that other scrolls still await discovery. In addition to becoming acquainted with the Scrolls and the ancient group who originally wrote them, readers will find out why the Dead Sea Scrolls continue to be significant for the Jewish and Christian religions today.
