From the Publisher'The Dead Sea Scrolls Translated is the most complete and authoritative English translation of the non-biblical Dead Sea Scrolls available. With this book, which includes many fascinating recently released texts, readers can find out what the scrolls really say. García Martínez brings years of scrolls research and scholarship to the translations and his wide grasp of the texts is evident throughout.'
Lawrence H. Schiffman, New York University.
'García Martínez deserves our gratitude for having compiled the most comprehensive one-volume edition of the Dead Seas Scrolls ever attempted. Drawing on his vast knowledge of and firsthand acquaintance with the texts, he has prepared a careful rendering into English of everything worth translating, including the full texts of the multiple copies of works such as the Community Rule and the Damascus Document. Especially helpful is the fact that line numbers are specified in the text so that the reader knows exactly where the words are found. The substantial introduction and the full list of Qumran manuscripts, with up-to-date bibliographical references, enhance the value of the volume even more.'
James C. VanderKam, University of Notre Dame.
'This is the most comprehensive translation of the Dead Ses Scrolls now available, and it should rapidly become a standard textbook.'
John J. Collins, Journal of Biblical Literature, 1995.
