The Scrolls is a novel; the life and death of John the Baptist, part scriptural and part fiction. It is the story of a "preacher's kid" growing up, wrestling with Yahweh's Call given through his father Zechariah. After his parent's deaths he lives in the wilderness with those involved in their writings, the "Dead Sea Scrolls." Two particular events enhance the story. The first is his journey north to Nazareth, looking for his Aunt Mary and Cousin Jesus. The other is the impact of the Scrolls on his life and his involvement in hiding them before his death. It is a story of love, both Yahweh's (God's) and His children!
