More on Feguson's thesis on "non-aligned' biblical DSS

THE ETC BLOG: Anthony Ferguson on the ‘Non-Aligned’ Dead Sea Scrolls (Guest post by Ferguson, posted by Jon Meade).
The thesis of my dissertation was as follows:
Contrary to Emanuel Tov’s analysis that fifty-five texts from Qumran are exclusively identified as textually non-aligned, a more cautious analysis of each text demonstrates that once the few ambiguous texts are excluded from the category, the remaining texts can reasonably be explained as belonging to the Masoretic tradition.
