I 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!
Dr. 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.
Dr. Price does an amazing job with the Rose Guide to 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.
"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.
