Jokiranta (the Bible and commentaries, U. of Helsinki) explains the serakhim (rule document) and pesharim (commentaries) by which those at Qumran lived. She examines the serakhim and sectarianism, sectarian sub-types, serakhim and social identity, pesharim and sectarian identity. The result is fascinating, as a people, once thought to be monolithic in their attitude, start to come alive. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
