In the winter of 1946-47, a shepherd boy threw a stone into a cave, hitting a clay jar and uncovering one of the most significant archaeological discoveries of modern times: the Dead Sea Scrolls. Though the saga of the discovery has been told and retold many times, less attention has been paid to how the events have unfolded over the decades. In this accessible and illuminating work, one of the world's foremost Dead Sea Scrolls scholars--and one of the first women to actually see the documents--reflects on the most significant learnings about these ancient documents of faith.
