Customer Reviews of The Dead Sea Scrolls - Revised Edition: A New Translation

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful translation The background information provided along with the text is interesting - but doesn't interfer with the text. The text is well organized, the notation is beautifully explained. The translation also extremely powerful and accurate. Checking some of the hebrew, you get a sense of the amount of work these folks put into this effort. Highly recommended.
