For centuries it stood, until the Babylonians captured Jerusalem and destroyed the Jewish temple. The devastation was both physical and spiritual: the Temple was an awesome structure, but it was also the place of the Lord's presence with his people, the place of worship.
About seventy years later, the people returned to Jerusalem and built a second temple. It wasn't as spectacular as the original, and those who remembered Solomon's golden pillars, wept over the difference. Yet it was the house of God to the exiles who came home.
Some 300 years later, Herod the Great, one of the greatest builders in the ancient world, renovated and expanded the second Temple and made it famous, rivaling the finest monuments of that time. This is the temple where Jesus was dedicated as a baby, where he honored the widow for giving all she had, and where he threw out the money changers.
The Temple is important, both as a historical and architectural masterpiece, and as a spiritual symbol of God's desire to dwell with his people.
This full-color book gives a complete easy-to-understand overview of the history of the Temple in Jerusalem. People who enjoy Bible study will love the fact that it answers many questions about how the Temple looked during biblical times. Bible scholars and professors will enjoy the well-annotated text. The author is archaeologist and professor Dr. Randall Price. He has spent more than 30 years exploring the Holy Land studying the Temple.
This book has more than 100 images, charts, diagrams, photos, and illustrations, many of which have never published before. It covers the span of time from Abraham to modern day.

"As former architect of the Temple Mount Excavations, following the 6-Day War, and as one who has, since then, been engaged in intensive Temple research, I highly recommend this book. Its lavish illustrations, which include color maps, diagrams and authoritative reconstructions, coupled with clear verbal descriptions, offer unique insights into the subject of the Temple. Christian leaders and visitors to the Holy Land will find it provides an invaluable overview of the topic from the time of the Tabernacle to the present day." - Dr. Leen Ritmeyer
The Rose Guide to the Temple provides an excellent blend of research of literary sources, archeological evidence, and architectural calculations of the Temple structures. It is based on painstaking research into all the technical details provided by Scripture sources, as well as ancient literary descriptions. Its precision and visual clarity make this Guide into an indispensable source for our knowledge about the ancient Temples. The student of Scripture as well as of religion will learn much from the clear and beautiful presentation of details that cannot be easily visualized when reading Scripture passages. This book also clearly lays out the relation between the few remains of the Temple with reference to the original buildings. This is an absolute must for the modern student and visitor to Jerusalem. - Dr. Emanuel Tov, J.L. Magnes Professor of Bible, Hebrew University of Jerusalem
Lauren Lebien5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent read!December 7, 2012Lauren LebienQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am a student at Liberty University and I had the privilege of having Dr. Price as my professor for Old Testament Survey. Dr. Price is a genius; sometimes things that he says are too smart for me and go right over my head - but that is not the case in this book. The aesthetic appeal, complete with illustrations and pictures, makes the descriptions of the temple and its' history easily understood.
This book is not a light read! However, it is truly beneficial in understanding the things that were spoken about the temple in the Old Testament.
It's a great book! Informative, interesting, and pretty!
Ian PringleLynchburg, VAAge: 18-24Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Well Done!December 7, 2012Ian PringleLynchburg, VAAge: 18-24Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Dr. Price's Guide to the Temple is a wonderfully done book. On first look you will probably do what I did, which is just flip through the book looking at the marvelous pictures that really bring the Old Testament descriptions to life. The images are all very well done. A great amount of detail lies within each image and it really helps you get beyond just a written description and allows you to truly visualize that the temple and many other things, like the tent, looked like. For a visual person like me, this book is essential!
On second read through I began to actually look at the text and everything took on a whole new level of clarity. I had not ever realized the true significance of the temple in the Old Testament until I read through this book.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning about the temple.

The book has many photos of the temple, which keeps it interesting. I highly recommend this book to whoever wishes to learn more about the Temple.
The book has "see inside" pages which allows the reader to "see inside" the temple. That is very interesting, and i can see what the Holy of Holies looked like. I recommend Dr. Price's book if you want to learn more about the Temple.
Dee DeeLynchburg, VAAge: 18-24Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5This product is very informative.December 7, 2012Dee DeeLynchburg, VAAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4"Rose Guide to the Temple" is really a great and helpful book especially for the students. I find that it's detailed and colorful pages really bring the study of the Bible and the Temple to life.The words are big enough for anyone interested in reading it so as to not put stress on the eyes, and the pictures detailed enough to give the readers a strong sense of the realities in the Biblical times. I really enjoyed that the pictures didn't fall short of just illustrations but that actual pictures were also used. The fact that the pictures were "layered" and it allowed you to go beyond the outside appearance of the Temple was pretty amazing also.Overall I would strongly recommend this book to any student or anyone who wishes to study more into the Lord's Biblical creation of the Temple.
Marques JonesLynchburg, VirginiaAge: 18-24Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5This product is full of amazing informationDecember 6, 2012Marques JonesLynchburg, VirginiaAge: 18-24Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I really loved reading Dr. Price's book The Rose Guide To the Temple. I've always found things written about the Old Testament really boring but once I started reading this it was honestly very interesting and hard to put down once I started reading. I also really enjoyed the pictures in the book because they allowed me to imagine what it was like to live back in that time. I could really tell just by reading about the temples that Dr. Price had a passion and love for the Old Testament unlike any person I have ever met. I never realized how important the temples were back then until I started reading Dr. Prices' book. I can't express enough to family and friends how much I love this book! I hope that other people will be blessed by his book as much as I was.
