Re: DSS on CD-ROM
I have the CD-ROM and no it doesn't contain all the fragments. It is
old-scool based, dramatic in tone and it is aimed naturally at sales -- in
short it's a commercial venture, and not a bad one at that. I have found it
interesting because it has many dss beasts: you can see a lot of Larry
Schiffman & Geza Vermes. You'll be able to hear Bob Eisenman, Michael Wise,
Jerome Murphy-O'Connor, Philip Davies and Magen Broshi. There is a large
selection of documents, but only one of the new wave of important
discoveries. It seems to take the old guard's line of Essene/monastery.
Content supervision was acredited to Dr Ronnie Reich.
It is interesting to see but it's not, for me, very substantial: it's very
difficult to be so in such a market.
Bob Kraft, I think, still has his review of the CD-ROM on his web-site.
