Back to the Book(s): KJV at 400: Life is the Bible. The rest is just commentary.

The late William Albright, generally regarded as one of the deans of Old Testament archaeology, described the Dead Sea Scrolls (DSS) as “the greatest manuscript discovery of modern times.” For most Christians, that might seem a bit of a stretch. After all, if the scrolls are so extraordinary, why don't they have something important to say not just to academics like Albright but to people in the pews?
