I went on a field trip with some folks from church to the Dead Sea Scrolls Exhibit in Huntsville, Alabama this past Saturday. The exhibit has fragments from the Dead Sea Scrolls, although they are just that: fragments. There's no real substantive content. That's not surprising as Israel keeps pretty close tabs on that sort of thing. The exhibit is basically a 'History of the Bible' type thing, with early manuscripts and early printed Bibles.

If you're in the Huntsville area it's worth going to see, I think. This is the last week before the exhibit travels to Ohio. I must admit quite a bit of skepticism with some of the 'scholarship' offered in the bookshop and promoted by various of the curators/lecturers, but seeing that sort of thing is a rare treat and worth your time.
