As a newly baptized member of the church in 1978, I was hungry to learn more about the church and church doctrine. My grandparents had been given copies of lectures that Brother Erickson had given on the Dead Sea Scrolls. I used to listen to them often. I was recently listening to one of the tapes and decided to look up Brother Erickson's name on the internet. Please pass on my sincere gratitude to him for having stimulated my lifelong study of the scriptures and these ancient texts.
