How were the Dead Sea Scrolls discovered? How many scrolls have been found? Has there been an attempt to prevent scholars from translating them? Have some of the scolls been withheld from the public? Who were the authors of the Dead Sea Scrolls? Were they Christians? Did the Dead Sea Scrolls authors believe in a pre-earth life? What value should Latter-day Saints place in the Dead Sea Scrolls? Kevin Barney discusses these questions in this live interview with Mills Crenshaw that appeared on K-Talk radio on July 12, 2012, in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Kevin Barney, a public finance attorney in Chicago, has published dozens of articles about Mormon studies in academic journals. He also serves on the Board of Directors of FAIR and of Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought and writes for By Common Consent.
