Overview

The Dead Sea Scrolls continue to be the subject of widespread interest and controversy. Unfortunately the discussions and debates surrounding them are not always accurate or clear. The Community of the Renewed Covenant grew out of a symposium, held at the University of Notre Dame in 1993, which convened to address the state of the question in scrolls research. The contributors to this volume, each a well-known Qumran scholar and member of the international team currently editing the unpublished scrolls, represent the cutting edge in Dead Sea Scrolls scholarship. They present here the most recent overviews and syntheses in various areas of scrolls study, making The Community of the Renewed Covenant the broadest, most authoritative, and up-to-date book available on the Dead Sea Scrolls.
