Gutes Ex. - In the first edition of this book I was widely welcomed by many readers who had been confused by the conflicting reports of the importance of the Dead Sea Scrolls. There have been many requests for a second edition, but it was felt best to delay this until the translation of existing material and the discovery of new would enable the second to be very much more than a mere reprint of the first. This present volume, therefore, gives us not only an eminently readable and thoroughly reliable account of the significance of the Dead Sea Scrolls, but also the latest and most up-to-date findings since the original discovery by a Bedouin goat-herd in the spring of 1947. - In this new edition the careful and learned Rylands Professor of Biblical Criticism and Exegesis in the University of Manchester has sifted all the evidence that has now become available, good, bad and indifferent, and has given us the fruit of his own insight into the interpretation of the light that these discoveries cast upon the Word of God, and especially upon happenings in the obscure Roman province of Judaea at the time when "the Word became flesh and pitched His tent among" men. In this book, as in all his writings, Prof. Bruce wears his learning lightly, and has presented us with an eminently readable and thoroughly reliable account of these outstanding discoveries.
