Review by Lee Prosser - email@example.com
A fact-filled book about the Essene mysteries, and the role that John the Baptist performed with Jesus' initiation, are part of this big book of information. It is a good, old-fashioned reading experience, one the reader will deeply enjoy!
This book has many topics, and among the many chapters are found "Was Jesus a Real Person? The Literary and Other Sources," The Archaeological Evidence for Jesus' Life," "The Qumran Community's Innermost Beliefs: Messianic Soldiers of Light," "Messiahs of Qumran," "Ethereal Melchizedek -- and Kabbalah," "Gnosticism at Qumran and the Dead Sea Scrolls," "Paul's Smoking Gun," "Beyond Paul," "The Missing Years," and "The Excavations at Qumran."
There is much to recommend about this well-researched book. It educates and entertains at the same time. A scholar of world religions, Robert Feather is also the author of The Mystery of the Copper Scroll at Qumran. He lives in London, England.
