Wise heavily influenced the creating of the supporting materials surrounding the scrolls exhibit—the largest and most expensive storyline ever presented by the Science Museum.
In conjunction with the exhibit’s anticipated opening, Wise has been interviewed by numerous media outlets and was recently quoted in the Pioneer Press front page feature, “Mystery of the Scrolls.”
A world-renowned expert, Wise has written seven books and more than 100 scholarly articles and book reviews on the scrolls including works profiled in Time magazine, Vanity Fair, National Geographic, the New York Times, Chicago Tribune and the Times of London, and on the old MacNeil/Lehrer News Hour, the BBC, A&E’s "Mysteries of the Bible," and in many other media outlets in the United States and abroad.
The second edition of his book, The Dead Sea Scrolls: A New Translation, appeared in 2005 and is the most comprehensive non-technical introduction to, and translation of, the scrolls.
Though Wise’s knowledge of the Scrolls has an impact globally, he focuses a majority of his time on teaching and mentoring students at Northwestern College while engaging in active study and research.
