Popularly known as "The War of the Sons of Light Against the Sons of Darkness," the War Scroll is one of the seven original Dead Sea Scrolls discovered in Qumran in 1947 and holds the Qumran library designator of “1QM,” meaning it was produced from the dig of cave 1. The War Scroll is a very important piece of literature in our understanding of the concepts of divine justice and retribution held by the Jewish community of the Essenes and the Qumran Community in the time of Jewish persecution by Rome. The scroll reflects a belief that in the end times evil would be eradicated by the Power of God and his Sons of Light. The Qumran community saw itself as a righteous light in the world, solidly on the side of good. As God’s army, they would fight evil in the world, and with God's help, through his agent, Michael the Archangel, they would win the battle against the Sons of Darkness and bring back righteousness and peace. The text is replete with parallel biblical and apocryphal verses, commentary, and references to numerical symbolism, all intended to lead the reader into an appreciation and understanding of the text.

    Interesting and Helpful Mr. Pumpkin has done a great job at helping me understand the "War Scroll." He used Scripture, the Book of Enoch, and the probable situation the writer(s) were facing to show y the War Scroll was written. This book is well written and keeps your attention throughout. If you are looking to get a better understanding of the Qumran community I highly recommended this book.

    I thought the author did a great job of pulling all the relevant scriptures together in order to make the literature of this text make sense. I saw a piece of this scroll while in the Israeli museum that dealt with many of the texts found at Qumran (the Dead Sea Scrolls). It prompted me to buy this book and read.
