Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should Be Reading. Here's how you play:

* Grab your current read.
* Let the book fall open to a random page.
* Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
* You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
* Please avoid spoilers!

My teaser:

"Today we can be certain that the settlement of Qumran - allegedly the home where the Dead Sea Scrolls were written by dedicated Jewish scribes - was not the isolated monastic settlement envisaged by Roland de Vaux. One clinching piece of evidence is the rich array of 679 ancient coins the site has yielded, 94 dating to the period of the First Jewish Revolt." - taken from page 85, God's Gold: The Quest For The Lost Temple Treasure of Jerusalem by Sean Kingsley

Looks really interesting. I read all I could about the dead sea scrolls back in high school. I should check this book out. Thanks
