From renowned Hebrew scholar Kenneth Hanson, author of Dead Sea Scrolls, comes a contemporary handbook of spiritual living based on the 2,000-year-old practices of the Essenes. Drawing on his extensive knowledge of the original Qumran Caves scrolls, Hanson distills and translates the most evocative passages of the ancient texts into a clear and profound manual broken into sections for the ten primary Essene virtues. Honoring the practice of simplicity, community, perseverance, and honest labor, this book enables modern readers to share in the timeless vision of the "Sons of Light."
