Books read in 2016: No. 17 -- The Dead Sea Scrolls

by Time Inc. Books

Started: May 21
Finished: May 24

Notes: This was one of those spur-of-the-moment purchases. I've been meaning for years to read more about the Dead Sea Scrolls, though I know a little, and this seemed like the right publication to get me started. I'm not expecting a lot of depth here, but that's okay. At least this can be a jumping off point.

Mini review: As expected, much of the information here was fairly general, but I still learned a fair amount concerning specifics, especially people and places and to some extent, dates. If I decide to pursue further study of the Scrolls, I feel this was a decent beginning, providing different ways of looking at the Scrolls and different issues surrounding them.

Definitely a fascinating topic that I've never found the time to explore more.
