Apocalypticism in the Dead Sea Scrolls
Paperback ISBN: 0415146372
Since the photographs of the Dead Sea Scrolls were released in 1992, there has been an explosion of interest in them. This volume explores the issue of apocalypticism in the Scrolls; how the notions of the 'end', Messianic expectation and eternal life affected the Dead Sea sect, influenced Judaism and filtered into Christianity. Collins' volume provides a valuable and accessible introduction to the interpretation of the Scrolls, which is an informative addition to the series examining the major themes of the Scroll texts.

The nine papers are from a February 2001 conference at Rice University. Only ancient texts and modern authors are indexed. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
