The full biblio info for Fisdale's book is:

The Dead Sea Scrolls : Understanding Their Spiritual Message, Steven A.
Fisdel, Norhtvale, NJ:  Jason Aronson, 1997.

The title is enough to make me want to review the book 'in-hand' before

Another title which has received good reviews is:

The Dead Sea Scrolls Translated : The Qumran Texts in English,
Florentino Garcia Martinez (Editor), Wilfred G. E. Watson (Translator),
Florentino Martinez, Grand Rapids:  Wm B Eerdmans Pub Co., 1996.

For future reference a good web site to find basic info about books is:
