The Dead Sea Scrolls: Questions and Responses for Latter-day Saints
Donald W. Parry and Stephen D. Ricks
Since their initial discovery in 1947, the Dead Sea Scrolls have stirred public curiosity. For Latter-day Saints, who believe in the coming forth of sacred records in the last days, the scrolls give rise to such questions as Are there references to Christ or Christianity in the scrolls? Is the plan of salvation attested in the scrolls? Do the scrolls refer to Jeseph Smith or other latter-day figures? This short book succinctly deals with these and other questions on topics of particular interest to LDS readers.

LDS Perspectives on the Dead Sea Scrolls
Donald W. Parry and Dana M. Pike, editors
Many Latter-day Saints are fascinated by the Dead Sea Scrolls. The scrolls help answer questions related to the gospel, such as How has the Bible been transmitted to our day? What did the Jews believe in the years between the end of the Old Testament and the time of Christ? How much of the full gospel was known by these people before the coming of Christ?
The detailed essays in this book give an overview of the history of the scrolls, compare the scrolls and their writers to the Book of Mormon and its authors, and discuss what the scrolls teach about several gospel topics. The book also includes a description of how high technology is aiding in all aspects of the translation of the scrolls.
