The Dead Sea Scrolls Uncovered

The First Complete Translation and Interpretation of 50 Key Documents Withheld for Over 35 Years(with Michael Wise). Penguin, 1992.

“Compiled by scholars Robert Eisenman and Michael Wise, these fifty documents cast a startling light on events in Palestine at the dawn of Christianity. They portray not a family of peaceful Essenes but a fiercely militant religious sect whose members awaited an apocalyptic Day of Vengeance. The authors speak of a messiah and the ressurection of the dead. They allude not only to doctrines we now recognize as Christian but also to the percursors of Islam and Jewish Kabbalism. Providing precise transliterations into modern Hebrew characters and English translations, and accompanied by detailed commentaries, ‘The dead sea scrolls uncovered’ represents a quantum leap in our knowledge of the ancient origins of modern faith.”
