The thirteen Qumran scholars in this book present the most recent overviews and syntheses in various areas of scrolls study, making The Community of the Renewed Covenant the broadest, most authoritative, and up-to-date book available on the Dead Sea Scrolls. These essays provide descriptions of the major areas of research, as well as explore the implications for longstanding problems in the field.
