Does anyone have this book, by James VanderKam?

It does not appear the Dead Sea Scrolls links work - I thought they used to, but now they don't. The Bible links work though.

For example, on page 154, there are links 4Q252, 4Q225-227, 4Q228, etc. The cursor changes to a hand, but no popup bubble like with the Bible links, and clicking on them does nothing.

Does your act differently or the same? Is this a problem with the resource or my system?

I get similar results.  Links to the scrolls don't work consistently.  On page 19 for example 4Q322 and 4Q324 work but 4Q448 does not.

My links don't work either.  Like you the Bible links work though.

Some of the links work (e.g., the ones on p. 83), but others don't. It seems to be a problem in the tagging of the book. Dominick, if you can still edit your post, would you change the subject line to BUG: Some links in "Dead Sea Scrolls Today" don't work so that it's more likely Melissa or someone will notice it and report it internally? Thanks!

It won't let me edit, so I'll start a new thread and point to this. Thanks
