Full description for The Letter and the Scroll
The Bible is the most influential book ever written. The way we study and approach the Bible has been radically transformed by many major archaeological finds over the past 100 years. In the mid-20th century, the discovery of the "Dead Sea Scrolls" alone has deepened our understanding of the Biblical world, its people, and their beliefs and other evidence and manuscripts continue to be uncovered. Each of these discoveries provides a fuller historical context for evaluating the Biblical narrative and the way these stories we written and handed down. In this new book, "The Letter and the Scroll", the story of modern archaeology's most important discoveries is laid out for the reader in rich detail. Find out what we know about the "Exodus" or David's kingdom, the way the "Hebrew Bible" was put together and transmitted, the beliefs of 1st century A.D. Jews, or the fierce debates between 2nd and 3rd century Christians.
