This volume contains the texts from Cave 4 at Qumran which did not find a home in the earlier volumes of Discoveries in the Judaean Desert, which were arranged by literary genre. Although many compositions found at Qumran were works already known from the Bible, Apocrypha, or Pseudepigrapha, these texts were previously unknown and include some works composed by the Qumran community itself. In addition, the volume contains some literary and documentary texts from sites near Qumran.

Stephen Pfann (Center for the Study of Early Christianity, Jerusalem), Philip Alexander (Department of Religions & Theology, Department of Religions & Theology, University of Manchester)

This volume contains an enormous amount of material that covers virtually the whole range of non-biblical literature attested at Qumran and even a possible biblical text and deserves close attention by students of the scrolls. The diversity of the material contained in this volume mirrors the diversity of the collection as a whole that has increasingly come to light. There is something here for everybody. Journal of Semitic Studies This volume is an important addition to the now all-but-complete Discoveries in the Judaean Desert series. The Journal of Theological Studies Includes important material ... Another feast for Qumran scholars! International Review of Biblical Studies Pfann's work is entirely plausible and will require detailed reconsideration of the early history of the community.
