A distinguished scholar of religious history shows the crit­ical impact of the Essene cult on early Christianity. Based on a close study of the Dead Sea Scrolls and other evidence, the author contends that Jesus, in all probability, was an adherent of this ardent Jewish sect. World-renowned Scrolls scholar Millar Burrows wrote of this book: "Of all the efforts thus far to demonstrate an Essene origin of Christianity, surely this is the most ingenious, elaborate and determined... An enormous amount of hard work and original thinking has gone into it."

With source notes, bibliography and index.
